DNS capturing is enabled in the default configuration file. So just follow the Getting Started Guide for Packetbeat and you should be up and running.

ok thank you for your response, but from where can I capture the traffic and analyze it ?

Packetbeat listens to the traffic on any one of the computer's network interfaces. So you install it on a server you will only see traffic to and from that server. If you want to see traffic from multiple devices on a network, then a common solution is to configure a port mirror on one of your managed switches or deploy a network tap device and feed that traffic to a free NIC on the server running Packetbeat.
