Filebeat on client server sending logs to Logstash - Timing out

Hi Everyone,

I've been working on setting up Elk to pull Jenkins build logs into Kibana dashboard.
I setup elasticsearch, kibana & logstash on one of AWS boxes and installed filebeat on the Jenkins master box.
I'm actually facing 2 issues and these could be inter-related.
Logstash service seems to be running, shown below:

However, when I try a simple curl on the box where it's installed, it shows below:

  1. My filebeat service on the Jenkins master looks fine and its running perfectly since I can see it harvesting the logs and trying to publish it to logstash. But it seems to be getting timed out.

Any help on these will be really appreciated.
I apologize if this has been discussed already.

Please never post screenshots if it's information that can be copied/pasted unless specifically asked to do so.

  1. The curl failure is expected since Logstash isn't exposing an HTTP service.
  2. Is Filebeat running on If no, can you connect from that host with e.g. telnet (well, you could use curl too but it'll fail in the same manner as above)?

Thanks for the info! Will keep that in mind going forward
I was able to resolve the issue.
