Filebeat input paths


(Kalman) #1

I'm working on a system that is monitoring logs files from a about 10 network paths.
both the log files and the elastic will be running on windows mentions.
I wanted to know if filebeat can handle the number of network paths or maybe it's recommended to use logstsh. I can't install any software on each endpoint to collect the logs.
I prefer filebeat because it is a light wave software, also I didn't find a official way to run logstash as a service on windows. if I use filebeat the processing will be done with ingest node for each input

dos anyone have a recommendation

We do not recommend using network volumes as it can have quite a few side affects: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/faq.html#filebeat-network-volumes You will potentially encounter similar issues with Logstash. It will work in most of the time as expected ...

For Logstash best ask in the Logstash discuss forum.
