How to install filebeat on Linux 3.10.0-327.18.2.el7.ppc64 GNU/Linux OS running on Power8?


(VIJAYA K PEDDAREDDY) #1

Hi,

I'm trying to install Filebeat on Linux 3.10.0-327.18.2.el7.ppc64 GNU/Linux OS which is running on Power 8 PC.

I tried to install filebeats referring https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-installation.html.

When I tried RPM option, got following issue:

$sudo rpm -vi filebeat-1.3.0-x86_64.rpm
Preparing packages...
package filebeat-1.3.0-1.x86_64 is intended for a different architecture

Can any one please help if there's any way to install filebeats on Power 8 (ppc64) machine and if there's is please share the steps.

Thanks in advance.

Regards
Vj.

The Go compiler supports ppc64 so you can either install a Go compiler on the target machine and build Filebeat or you can cross-compile for ppc64 from a machine with a different architecture. The CONTRIBUTING file details how to build.
