FIlebeat sends garbled messages to logstash


Around midnight, filebeat sends garbled messages like "message":"\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000\u0000" to logstash. The log file is in a glusterfs network share. We are using filebeat version 6.0.
Please advise on what can be done for this.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi @breetty,

Is this always happening at the same ~time? I'm wondering, does the file gets rotated at that time?

Best regards

Yes it is always happening at same time time range, from 12:30 am to 2:00 am. The log keeps rotating multiple times in a day but the last rotation for the day happens during that time only. Do you think that is a problem?
