I have installed filebeat 7.5.1 on a new server, and I realized that the folder in which I want filebeat to save his own logs is not created anymore. This was working in the previous version. I am doing something wrong or it is just a change of behaviour in the way filebeat is working?
I am configuring the log folder in filebeat.yml like this:
logging.level: warning logging.to_files: true logging.to_syslog: false logging.metrics.period: 30s logging.files: path: /var/log/filebeat name: filebeat.log rotateeverybytes: 10485760 # = 500MB keepfiles: 7 permissions: 0644 logging.json: true
