How to handle log duplications on docker restart


(Idan Gozlan) #1

Hi,

Im trying to understand how to handle cases that filebeat docker is restarted and start collect same logs line again.

I guess that there is a way to mount filebeat offset information, I didn't see any information about that, maybe im searching the wrong keywords.

Edit: is that right thing to do to mount filebeat/data:/usr/share/filebeat/data in order to prevent duplicates?

Thanks

Yes, the data directory stores the registry file which has all the information about which files were already read. You should make sure that this is persisted and reused.
