Filebeat always logging at least at DEBUG level

(Timothy Clotworthy) #1

Hi, in my filebeat.yml file I have:

logging.level: error

, in spite of the filebeat is writing all messages (DEBUG, INFO, ERROR).

Thinking it might be needing the -v option at the command line, I start filebeat this way:

sudo ./filebeat -v -c filebeat.yml -d "publish"

This -v did not change anything. I have also tried --v .

I would be grateful for any ideas. Thank you

The -d "publish" flag is enabling debug messages for the publish selector.
