Filebeat is always read file from beginning

HI Team,

I am using filebeat-7.3.2-1.x86_64 for application log reading.

but all the time filebeat read log from starting, hence duplicate data is present in elastic

please suggest what configuration required?

Hello @rguptarg,

Few parameters like clean_inactive , scan_frequency has to be tweaked. Also kindly check if there is any log rotation enabled or any cron for logFile renaming which might also cause these issues. Kindly do check the below link for more details of many attributes such as clean_inactive , scan_frequency, etc.
