Filebeat does not create daily indices into elasticsearch automatically


(Xiaozhong Liu) #1

filebeat does not create daily indices into elasticsearch automatically.
for example I have to manually create a indice like filebeat-2017.04.24, with this, filebeat can then auto harvest and dump logs.

if no indice is there today, the following error shows up:
2017/04/24 02:58:07.022131 output.go:109: DBG output worker: publish 10 events

stack & environment:
filebeat => elasticsearch => kibana (with x-pack)
elasticsearch version 5.3.0

What version of things are you using?
What does your config look like?

Hi warkolm, thanks for ur reply, I revised the original post.

[update: resolved]
the solution is to append ,filebeat* to the action.auto_create_index option in elasticsearch.yml
I recommend the editor to revise the following wiki to add a note or directly append filebeat and logstash for the convenience of future readers.

Please don't post pictures of text, they are difficult to read and some people may not be even able to see them.
