Just in case , HOST ELK is logstash.conf file is needed.

input {
beats {
port => 5044
ssl => true
ssl_certificate => "/etc/ssl/logstash-forwarder.crt"
ssl_key => "/etc/ssl/logstash-forwarder.key"
congestion_threshold => "40"
filter {
if [type] == "syslog" {
grok {
match => { "message" => "%{SYSLOGLINE}" }

date {
match => [ "timestamp", "MMM d HH:mm:ss", "MMM dd HH:mm:ss" ]
output {
elasticsearch {
hosts => localhost
index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"
stdout {

Can you look at your Logstash logs to see if any error is printed there?
