Error installing beats input plugin


(SandhyaRani) #1

Hi ,

I am trying to install logstash input beats plugin , I am getting the following error:

File /opt/logstash/Gemfile does not exist or is writable, aborting

I ran the command:
/opt/logstash$ ./bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-input-beats

Could any one help with this ?
Thanks!

The plugin comes pre-installed with Logstash. Why are you manually installing it?

So, I thought this problem (connection refused) is due to beats plugin ,
can I know why I am getting the above error?

Any help?


(Steffen Siering) #4

is logstash actually running and reachable on port 5044 (try telnet localhost 5044)? The connection refused indicates no process listening on port 5044.


(SandhyaRani) #5

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah the problem is port 5044 was not listening

Now its working fine
I checked using telnet localhost 5044 .

Thanks!
