Filebeat does not send data to logstash


(Kavita Sidar) #1

I am new to filebeat and logstash and was trying to send log data from filebeat to logstash as per the documentation. But logstash does not disply any output.
This is the filebeat.yml file:

    filebeat.prospectors:
    - type: log
      paths:
        - C:\Users\Sidar\Downloads\Compressed\logstash-tutorial.log
    output.logstash:
         hosts: ["127.0.0.1:5044"]

and this is the logstash config file

input {
    beats {
        port => "5044"
    }
}
# The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is
# optional.
# filter {
#
# }
output {
    stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

This should display the logs on console but there is not output after

[2018-06-04T01:27:21,147][INFO ][logstash.pipeline ] Starting pipeline {:pipeline_id=>"main", "pipeline.workers"=>4, "pipeline.batch.size"=>125, "pipeline.batch.delay"=>50}
[2018-06-04T01:27:21,677][INFO ][logstash.inputs.beats ] Beats inputs: Starting input listener {:address=>"0.0.0.0:5044"}

[2018-06-04T01:27:21,858][INFO ][org.logstash.beats.Server] Starting server on port: 5044
[2018-06-04T01:27:21,954][INFO ][logstash.agent ] Pipelines running {:count=>1, :pipelines=>["main"]}

Please help as I'm not able to diagnose this.

Hi @Kavita_Sidar,

i've checked you config files it seems ok and your logstash logs are showing that its working fine and ready to collect the logs from filebeat.

but for more understanding the issue i need your filebeat logs so that i can provide the solution to you.

Request you to paste the filebeat logs.

Path: /etc/filebeat/filebeat

Regards,

it seems ok no error found. Are you able to telnet or ping from filebeat node?

Please check 5044 port is open or not.

Regards,


(Kavita Sidar) #5

Yes it is able to telnet and ping. The port is open.


(Kavita Sidar) #7

It worked when i specified the address directly to the log file:
-C:\Users\Sidar\Downloads\Compressed\logstash-tutorial.log\logstash-tutorial-dataset
in the filebeat.yml file. It's showing output in logstash.

But i dont understand why it was not able to pick file when only the folder was specified.


(Harsh Bajaj) #8

Hi,

Sorry but i think there is something wrong in your path you have specified is .log/logstash-tutorial-dataset means after log file you mentioned directory or what is this i'm not able to understand.

please explain below configuration a bit more.


(Kavita Sidar) #9

Hi,
logstash-tutorial-dataset is the apache log file and logstash-tutorial.log is the folder which contains logstash-tutorial-dataset file.


(Harsh Bajaj) #10

Hi,

Ohk i understood your point now. Please use below format for same and restart the services and try it

Please do let me know if you are still facing issue.

Regards,


(Kavita Sidar) #11

Thank you.
