Filebeat to read logs from Remote server location


(Fredrick Yessaian) #1

Hello All,

I have a question on Filebeat.

Is it possible filebeat to read the log file data from remote server location?
Anybody have configured for this situation?

Can I get advice on this?

Thanks

Only if that remote location is accessible through a normal file system, e.g. over an NFS or CIFS mount.

Thanks for your response..

  1. If It is accessible .. what are the configuration I should have in filebeat?

2.In this case Can I skip filebeat and can I use logstash to read the logs directly from remote location?

Thanks

I'm not sure I understand. The configuration would look exactly the same as if it were a local file, except the path would obviously point to a path within the mounted remote path.

Sure.
