I am on beats7.10 and centos 7
We are going to move all our logging to move and hup but for now I have some applications where we are using copytruncate
I see the following behaviour. After the log file is truncated I see a few lines in elasticsearch but then the data stops.
I looked in /var/lib/filebeat/registry/filebeat/log.json
I found the file in question. The inode is correct but the log offset is greater than the current filesize. So I wonder if filebeats got confused when the file was truncated and is waiting for the old log offset
scan_frequency: 10s ignore_older: 24h
also paths does not match the rotated file
I see this in the debug log which seems ominous bit I have no idea why it is not recognising the inputs if that is the case.
