Docker Beat with Docker ELK


(Domenico Zingone) #1

Hi,
i have a docker container that is running filebeat container in on one host with an webpp an his logfile, and the docker ELK on other.

i configure filebeat.yml :

filebeat.prospectors:
- input_type: log
  paths:
    - /logs/*.log 
output.logstash:
  hosts: ["172.18.0.4:5000"]

IP address is the ip of the container that run logstash

docker ps: 
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                     COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                                            NAMES

logstash has 5000:5000 port mapped and 5044 only exposed
With docker inspect i took the ip of logstash that i use in the filebeat.yml

In the filebeat container i run the command:

./filebeat -e -c filebeat.yml -d "publish"

and i have this response:

2017/09/13 10:12:42.605212 output.go:109: DBG  output worker: publish 2039 events

in the logstash/pipiline/logstash.conf with this config:

input {
	tcp {
		port => 5000
	}
}

output {
	elasticsearch {
		hosts => "elasticsearch:9200"
	}
}

but in filebeat has error and of course logstash don't pass anything to logstash...
Please help me

localhost inside of the Filebeat container refers to the container itself and not the parent host running the container. You either need to

  • specify the IP/hostname of the docker host machine (this is possible because you have forwarded port 5000 from the LS container)
  • or link the filebeat and logstash containers such that you can directly communicate to the LS container from the FB container (this is probably how LS, ES, and Kibana are all communicating)

BTW You might want to have a look at the elastic/stack-docker demo project. It uses docker-compose to run the whole Elastic stack.
