Please help me,my os server couldn't upgrade!

RHEL5 ... interesting since that's not a supported version for Filebeat

Did it work for you before the upgrade?

1.Are there some other version could support RHEL5?
2.yeah,in a short time ,my team couldn't upgrade the version of server.the jdk's version is 1.4 on the the logstash is not be deployed.

You may also want to take this a different way. Rather than solving a problem with getting logs to come off of a rhel5 sever, perhaps you should tell them to get off rhel5. I have to imagine the support cost are fairly High, especially where this platform is at from supportability perspective from Red Hat.

I am using RHEL 7,and its working fine for 6.6.1. Doubt a minor update will break the upgrade process.

thanks for your reply.
i have to use logstash with jdk1.8 on the RHEL5,just ELK.

my os'version is rhel5,there are production server online.i have to use ELK

i am running on java-1.8.0-openjdk ,and since there are no major technical differences with Oracle JDK we can rule that out.

Possible to try running on a sandbox with RHEL 7 installed? RHEL 5 is like coming to end of its life

RHEL5 uses a pretty old kernel, which I think is not supported by the go runtime. Which kernel version are you using? 2.6.18-398?

It says 2.6.23+ is required.

The crash occurs on the epollwait syscall.

Our servers'version is 2.6.18-164.el5.
I have seen "MinimumRequirements" that about golang.
The problem should be linux kernel's reason.

Can we change the title of this to FileBeat and RHEL5 ?
I think most users who have read the manual undersatnd it's not supported, so drawing attention to this post is unneccesary, and is not something people need to spend time reading.
