I have a filebeat running and I can see in the logs that it is parsing my log files. The check config worked and it stated that everything is ok. I goto logstash and I have a filebeat.conf in the conf.d folder. Inside this file the input is declared with the output port declared in the filebeat instance. How can I check that logstash is actually receiving data from filebeat. Once I have established this then I see to be able to figure out how I know logstash is sending the data to elasticsearch.
By the way my filebeats version is 7.6.0 and my logstash version is 6.2.4 are they compatible?
Any help would be great thanks Cal
