setup.template.name: "nginx"
setup.template.overwrite: false
setup.template.pattern: "nginx-*"

setup.template.name: "ro"
setup.template.pattern: "ro*"

but when i start filebeat , i found err log

2018-01-17T17:02:36+08:00 INFO Connected to Elasticsearch version 6.1.1
2018-01-17T17:02:36+08:00 INFO Template already exists and will not be overwritten.
2018-01-17T17:02:37+08:00 ERR  Failed to publish events: temporary bulk send failure

Hi @zhangrandl,

You cannot set 2 different templates like that, the second definition is overriding the previous one. That say, I'm not sure what the error is about. Could you please share the full log output, it should give some more context?

it's only this. if I have two index , I must write two templates in one files?

From what I see there is an error while indexing in the Elasticsearch side, perhaps it's related to your pipeline pattern? Please check Elasticsearch logs, they should be telling us something about what's going on.

Best regards


(Zhangrandl) #6

my elasticsearch use docker , I don't konw how to check elasticsearch logs


(Carlos Pérez Aradros) #7

You can list running containers with docker ps, then use docker logs <container_name> to get logs from one of them

this elasticsearch logs, I don't find error


(Carlos Pérez Aradros) #9

Is the cluster under load? From the logs it looks like you are getting bulk rejections, check this blog post for a good explanation on how to troubleshoot that:


(Zhangrandl) #10

I only have one elasticsearch. the elasticsearch logs is before i start filebeat, when i start filebeat , elasticsearch don't show any log
