Can you please do the following things:

  • Run filebeat with the flags -e -d "*" options and post the output here
  • Post the filebeat.yml config file here with the proper formatting so it is possible to review?

As a reference: Here was the initial question: https://github.com/elastic/filebeat/issues/321

Indirectly, this response helped me :wink:
I was trying to figure out why filebeat is not picking up my logs.
I'm running a POC with static logs.
Running in debug mode using above command helped me find that the logs were not getting harvested since the beat thought there are no changes to it.
touching the files and removing registry ensured that the files got picked in the next run.

Thanks so much :slight_smile:
