I am new to ealsticsearch and metricbeat, and GO/MAGE. I've successfully compiled filebeat and am working on metricbeat on a Power9 ppc64le system. The following make commands work successfully:
make check make fmt
When I issue the make build command, the message states "there is nothing to be done". Other targets states that there are no rule to make target.
And when I issue the make command with no targets, it returns the following.
[root@r1cn07 metricbeat]# pwd /root/bld/beats/src/github.com/elastic/beats/metricbeat [root@r1cn07 metricbeat]# make Use mage rather than make. Here are the available mage targets: Targets: addLicenseHeaders adds license headers build builds the Beat binary. buildGoDaemon builds the go-daemon binary (use crossBuildGoDaemon). check formats code, updates generated content, check for common errors, and checks for any modified files. checkLicenseHeaders checks license headers clean cleans all generated files and build artifacts. collectAll generates the docs and the fields.
I've been searching for documentation that will help me build metricbeat on ppc64le, and a little more info on how to execute the Makefiles and the format for parameters. I could use some help with this.
