I am trying to test out filebeat on a Windows server. Currently I am echoing into a test file that filebeat is monitoring and then output to another file to see what the output looks like. I am writing to the test file with the following command:
echo "Does this work?" >> .\Logtest.log
In the output file the Message portion looks like:
"message":"\ufffd\ufffdD\u0000o\u0000e\u0000s\u0000 \u0000t\u0000h\u0000i\u0000s\u0000 \u0000w\u0000o\u0000r\u0000k\u0000?\u0000\r\u0000",
Thoughts on whats going on?
