Filebeat Consumer high memeory!


(Rehan) #1

Hello there.. We are seeing very high memory consuming by Filebeat application?
Can someone shed us some light what could be the reason? What needs to be checked?

There could be several reasons here. Some thoughts:

  • What does your filebeat.yml look like? What inputs / output / other settings are you using?
  • Are you using any Filebeat modules?
  • Are there any errors in the Filebeat logs?
  • You could try setting up Monitoring for Filebeat (it's free) and look at the charts to see if you see any correlations with memory increase over time? https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/monitoring.html
