Filebeat not creating index in ES 6.5.1


(Vishnu Jyothi) #1

Hi

Am using filebeat 6.5.1 connected to ES 6.5 , was trying/googling to find a fix to index creation problem. metricbeat and heartbeat installed in same machine are working fine (creating index and all)

ALL my ES/Kibana and beats are in same machine so configuration are pretty simple . Tried many steps given in similar issues and didn't succeeded any help would be much useful

The filebeat-* index is created when Filebeat first tries to index a log event from one of your log files. I see you included the Filebeat log above. Is this the complete log? Are there any mentions of "Harvester" in your Filebeat log?
