I have a filebeat installed in Ubuntu 20.04.
I have changed my input file path to my own log path.
But when it starts to service, it seems to collect the default system logs.
I tried to use
sudo /usr/share/filebeat/bin/filebeat -e -c /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml
But it didn't work.
Here is my .yml file.
filebeat.inputs: # filestream is an input for collecting log messages from files. - type: filestream # Change to true to enable this input configuration. enabled: true # Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths. paths: - /home/username/log_path/*.json json.keys_under_root: true json.overwrite_keys: true json.add_error_key: true
