I was just experimenting with apachebeat. I was able to get it working well on the test server. Then I was ready to add it to more server, but realized that it did not come with an init file.
What is the best way to get init files working for community beats that don't have them already? On Ubuntu, CentOS, etc.
I did find this. so I assume there's a way for beat owners to generate init scripts automatically.
Is there a way I could do that myself?
Hmm... could I change line 10 in this file from:
winlogbeat/win apachebeat/deb \
to get an apachebeat.deb file with the correct init script? Assuming I check apachebeat out into the root of the beats directory.
I'm currently making the docker images, then I try it myself.
I'm posting this first because I'm hoping someone will have a cleaner way of doing this.
