Get logs from an remote SSH server without tools on remote server


Currently i have an Windows Comptuter with Kibana 5 and two tomcat remote server.
I could connect only with SSH vith putty to acces remote tomcat logs.
I could not install tools on theses linux server

Could i configure logstah or kibana tou automatically getting logs from my two remote servers ?


You could set up a scheduled job to periodically fetch the files (using e.g. scp) and put them in a directory that you've configured Logstash to look in. The first step would be to only copy files that won't change any more (i.e. they have been rotated). Using the described approach to continuously copy files as they are changing is a lot more difficult.
