This is my filebeat output : courser is blinking continuously but not showing output why ?
when i use same code as i written above in filebeat config file with .log extension it will work fine.
tomorrow this code is running for both err and log sup-rattly or together.

My filebeat0.yml
filebeat:

prospectors:

paths:

  • c:/Users/akashsoni/Downloads/k/logstash-tutorial/tutorial/*.log
  • c:/Users/akashsoni/Downloads/k/logstash-tutorial/tutorial/*.err

input_type: log

registry_file: "C:/ProgramData/filebeat/registry"

output:

logstash:
hosts: ["localhost:5044"]
shipper:

logging:

files:
rotateeverybytes: 10485760 # = 10MB

What sort of output do you expect?


(prakash kumar soni) #4

Transfer of data that what filebeat is sending,and i used publish command.


(Mark Walkom) #5

You only have the logstash output, you may want to look at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/console-output.html


(prakash kumar soni) #6

shall i increase the size of buffer?


(prakash kumar soni) #7

my logstash is also not giving output in elastic search.


(prakash kumar soni) #8

Hi,

suppose I make one log file and send that file from filebeat to logstash and then to elasticsearch it works fine ,but when i remove the file from my elasticsearch ,then rerun with same file it will not show any output just my courser is blinking on filebeat side ,filebeat is ready to send but not send any data to logstash.Same problem with the logstash also.Why?

if you are going to resend the same file, you will need to remove the filebeat registry. it keeps track of what it already sent and will not send it again.
