Filebeat syslog input on windows

(Josh McGee) #1

Has anyone successfully used the syslog input on windows?
I have tried several incantations of configuration so far, and I get no results. Historically we have used nxlog to take syslog input and spool to a file on a windows device, then use filebeat to ship up to our elastic instance. This works, however if disable nxlog, and enable the config below, and I do not seem to get any errors that appear relavant to the syslog input until I stop the filebeat service.

This is currently on filebeat 6.4.1
below is my config
filebeat.inputs:

  • type: syslog
    protocol.udp:
    host: "localhost:9200"
