Docker monitoring


(Jens Van Deynse) #1

Hello

I recently started to implement an ELK stack for our application logs and this goes well for all the filebeat hosts which aren't docker but we've got several docker applications and it's possible to set the host for the logs but what about for monitoring:

Now I get a random value (f43f33f4ffd5) but I would like to change this to the hostname for filebeat monitoring, is there a config option built in for this because I haven't found any.

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you

I think what would help your case would be to specify a name for the Filebeat instance in the startup arguments. See: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/configuration-general-options.html#_literal_name_literal

In the list of beats in Monitoring, the beat will be shown by its Beat name, but if none is given, it will default to showing the hostname.
