Filebeat is running but not sending logs/data to logstash

Hi Team,

I am trying to setup filebeat on my centos 7 machine. filebeat is working fine but still not able to send logstash.
Filebeat.yml file
###################### Filebeat Configuration Example #########################

This file is an example configuration file highlighting only the most common

options. The filebeat.reference.yml file from the same directory contains all the

supported options with more comments. You can use it as a reference.

You can find the full configuration reference here:

For more available modules and options, please see the filebeat.reference.yml sample

configuration file.

#=========================== Filebeat inputs =============================


Each - is an input. Most options can be set at the input level, so

you can use different inputs for various configurations.

Below are the input specific configurations.

  • type: log

    Change to true to enable this input configuration.

    enabled: true

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.


    • /home/rahul-1/logstash-tutorial.log
      #- c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*

    Exclude lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It drops the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list.

    #exclude_lines: ['^DBG']

    Include lines. A list of regular expressions to match. It exports the lines that are

    matching any regular expression from the list.

    #include_lines: ['^ERR', '^WARN']

Are you sure the file hasn't been processed before? In the debug logs, it says that the file hasn't changed.
Could you share the registry file and the example logs you are trying to send?
