I have installed Elastic Search, FileBeat and Kibana on my Windows 7 machine.
As of now my log path is C:\LogFiles\ and it contains 5 files(Log File 1.txt...2.txt....). I created it new and have some contents in it.
I edited the yaml file to pick the logs from "- C:\LogFiles*" and have set "input_type: file". No more changes.
I started all the 3(ES, Kibana and FB) from Windows Services. When tried searching for a text in Kibana, no results where found.
Also, I edited the yaml file to pick the logs from "- C:\LogFiles*" and have set "input_type: log". Again no results.
What am I missing here ? Also, do I need to restart FB, ES or KB services if I have any changes to my log files?
