# Filebeat not able to ship logs for multiple paths

I have the below configuration for filebeat :

``````---
filebeat.config.modules:
path: "\${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml"
filebeat.inputs:
-
enabled: true
paths:
- '/builds/v2018/jenkins/jobs/ELK_CI-ID/builds/*/log'
- '/builds/v2018/jenkins/jobs/ELK_TEST/builds/*/log'
type: log
output.logstash:
hosts:
- "10.50.xx.6x:5044"
ssl.certificate_authorities:
- /etc/filebeat/security2/logstash.crt
setup.kibana: ~
setup.template.settings:
index.number_of_shards: 3
``````

As can be seen in the above configuration , the number of paths are 2 here . In the filebeat logs , I can see the harvester getting started .

The problem is that I have 30 paths in total - all unique paths. When I add all the 30 paths , I dont see any logs in kibana. The indices size doesnot increment . However , the filebeat status shows as active and running. When I add all the paths , I dont see logs from the above two paths as well . When I had only 2 paths , the logs were visible perfectly.Any idea on what I might be doing wrong here ?

Hello @mrashid,

Lets try a few questions first to get a bit more details:

• Is there any errors in the log concerning the harvester?
• What version of filebeat you are running?
• How many files we are trying to monitor total in all the directories?
• Do you have directories in directories / many level deep?
