Building Libbeat without docker-compose?

Hi All,

I have been trying to build elastic/beats from Github on a CentOS 6 host.
I had to update virtualenv and golang; but then, it looks like make depends on docker-compose to proceed.
Is it possible to supress it somehow to just build w/o coverage testing ans what not? CentOS 6 does not support Docker well and I believe cannot have docker-compose for that.

Has anyone succeed in building beats on CentOS 6?


You can build and unit test without docker. Try these commands.

cd beats/filebeat
make update         # This generates config files.
go build            # This builds the filebeat binary. Running "make" does this.
go test -v ./...    # This runs all the unit tests for filebeat. Running "make unit-tests" does this.
