How can I pick logs from a specific directory and display on Kibana dashboard


(Muhammad Hasan) #1

I am a newbie on elastic-stack. I setup a elastic-stack and filebeat on Ubuntu 16.04 on local environment. Now I want to read log files from a specific directory through Filebeat. In my case "LogFile" is my directory which is placed on Ubuntu desktop. The path of my LogFile is "/home/owais/Desktop/LogFile" I want to know how to read the logs from that directory and display on Kibana dashboard.

Thanks for the help

See Filebeat Getting Started Guide and Getting Started with the Elastic Stack guide.

The guides contain the commands you need to run the Filebeat, Elasticsearch and Kibana.
