Filebeat harvests files but doesn't send them anywhere


(Bogdan Vlad) #1

Hi,

I am using Filebeat version 6.6.2 on macOS. The configuration files is:

filebeat.prospectors:
- type: log
  enabled: true
  paths:
    - /tmp/*.json
  json.keys_under_root: true
  json.overwrite_keys: true

output.logstash:
  enabled: true
  hosts: ["localhost:32771"]
  index: "nslogs"

setup.template.name: "nslogs"
setup.template.pattern: "nslogs"

I am running it with this command filebeat --path.config . -c filebeat_nslogs.yml -e -v run.

What I see is that the files are harvested correctly, but then nothing happens with them even though I specified the output to logstash. I used to see some logs when filebeat was trying to connect and send the files, but now I don't receive anything. I don't know what has changed. I've even tried to put a random port to see if I receive Connection refused and I've tried to listen with a process on 32771 to see if something is received. Nothing worked.

Filebeat logs:

I have the same problem when I host ELK stack and Filebeat with Docker. The example that I've gave you above is just Filebeat process started manually. I've tried to isolate the problem away from the Docker infrastructure.

Thanks,
Bogdan

I've figured out what the problem is. It can be closed.
