Command "filebeat modules list" doesn't work on Ubuntu

Hi there,

Maybe I am missing something but the docs say running "./filebeat module list" should output a list of modules. I have tried the following on Ubunut but the system just "hangs". I.e Nothing outputted to the console.

"sudo /usr/share/filebeat/bin/filebeat -c /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml -path.home /usr/share/filebeat -path.config /etc/fibeat /var/lib/filebeat -path.logs /var/log/fileBeat modules list"

Is the currently supported configuration for moudles only where kibana, elastisearch are all running on one node and there is no logstash or components on remote nodes? I guess elasitsearch could be on a remote node?

Which version of filebeat are you using?

Support for modules (and other) commands has been added to 6.0 only.

Ah ok - I am on 5.6 still. Thanks for the answer.
