I did read a couple of posts here but was not able to get the issue resolved.
I'm using filebeat-1.2.0(downloaded tar) and Logstash2.2.2. I want to force re-parse the files provided in the path section, but that doesn't seem to work.
I stopped file beat. I deleted the .filebeat registry. I start filebeat. I can see the paths I need appear in the registry file, but no parsing happens.
prospectors: paths: /var/*.log ignore_older: 0 output: logstash: # The Logstash hosts hosts: ["localhost:5044"]
Please let me know if i'm missing something here. Also, tail_files is commented.
Running ./filebeat -v -d * doesn't give any output
