How to read logs from a UNIX\LINUX box

In my application I am supposed to read the logs from a UNIX or LINUX box and my ELK stack is running on my local Windows 8 Machine. I have my username and password for the UNIX\LINUX box but how can I put this information in logstash.conf file


Is there any other workaround for such kind of environments , Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

Usually you send the logs to Logstash using Filebeat or rsyslog.

OK Thanks for the pointer , I will try playing with Filebeats too. :slight_smile:
