So I have Filebeat configured to check a few .log and a few .txt files. But no data is showing up in ElasticSearch. For testing purposes I reconfigured filebeat to output to a local file and no data is showing up within the local file either. Running a -configtest returns with no configuration errors. I have verified that the paths are correct.
Is there a way for me to test that filebeat can even open to read the source file? Filebeat is running as a Windows service.
