I have installed elk stack on some server A with IP: x.x.x.x.
I have installed metricbeat on another server B with IP: y.y.y.y
I have configured metricbeat.yml as below
####### Metricbeat Configuration Example
This file is an example configuration file highlighting only the most common
options. The metricbeat.reference.yml file from the same directory contains all the
supported options with more comments. You can use it as a reference.
You can find the full configuration reference here:
=========== Modules configuration ==========
Glob pattern for configuration loading
Set to true to enable config reloading
Period on which files under path should be checked for changes
========== Elasticsearch template setting =========
====================== General ========
The name of the shipper that publishes the network data. It can be used to group
all the transactions sent by a single shipper in the web interface.
The tags of the shipper are included in their own field with each
#tags: ["service-X", "web-tier"]
Optional fields that you can specify to add additional information to the
======================= Dashboards ============
These settings control loading the sample dashboards to the Kibana index. Loading
the dashboards is disabled by default and can be enabled either by setting the
options here, or by using the
-setup CLI flag or the
The URL from where to download the dashboards archive. By default this URL
has a value which is computed based on the Beat name and version. For released
versions, this URL points to the dashboard archive on the artifacts.elastic.co
============ Kibana ============
Starting with Beats version 6.0.0, the dashboards are loaded via the Kibana API.
This requires a Kibana endpoint configuration.
Scheme and port can be left out and will be set to the default (http and 5601)
In case you specify and additional path, the scheme is required: http://localhost:5601/path
IPv6 addresses should always be defined as: https://[2001:db8::1]:5601
Kibana Space ID
ID of the Kibana Space into which the dashboards should be loaded. By default,
the Default Space will be used.
============== Elastic Cloud ============
These settings simplify using metricbeat with the Elastic Cloud (https://cloud.elastic.co/).
The cloud.id setting overwrites the
You can find the
cloud.id in the Elastic Cloud web UI.
The cloud.auth setting overwrites the
output.elasticsearch.password settings. The format is
#================================ Outputs =====================================
Configure what output to use when sending the data collected by the beat.
#-------------------------- Elasticsearch output ------------------------------
Array of hosts to connect to.
Enabled ilm (beta) to use index lifecycle management instead daily indices.
Optional protocol and basic auth credentials.
#----------------------------- Logstash output --------------------------------
The Logstash hosts
Optional SSL. By default is off.
List of root certificates for HTTPS server verifications
Certificate for SSL client authentication
Client Certificate Key
#================================ Processors =====================================
Configure processors to enhance or manipulate events generated by the beat.
- add_host_metadata: ~
- add_cloud_metadata: ~
================= Logging ==============
Sets log level. The default log level is info.
Available log levels are: error, warning, info, debug
At debug level, you can selectively enable logging only for some components.
To enable all selectors use ["*"]. Examples of other selectors are "beat",
#============================== Xpack Monitoring ===============================
metricbeat can export internal metrics to a central Elasticsearch monitoring
cluster. This requires xpack monitoring to be enabled in Elasticsearch. The
reporting is disabled by default.
Set to true to enable the monitoring reporter.
Uncomment to send the metrics to Elasticsearch. Most settings from the
Elasticsearch output are accepted here as well. Any setting that is not set is
automatically inherited from the Elasticsearch output configuration, so if you
have the Elasticsearch output configured, you can simply uncomment the
while I start the metricbeats service I got the below log.
