Hi @markov,

I guess the error is that INFO entry not being able to detect your hosting provider.
Can you share some details on the environment where Filebeat is executing?


I am running filebeat on a private network for a company, and logstash in another machine of the network

Is there any error at the logs? I can only see INFO and DEBUG.

Can you share your config files?

Also, can you configure temporarily the console output to make sure that no logs are being gathered?
