hi,
I am new to filebeat. I didn't understand the filebeat documentation.In filebeat.yml when the you specify the path to directory which has your log files,how are the going get parsed,is there any use of config file which had the intelligence to enrich the field,does filebeat have the intelligence to enrich the fields automatically.If anyone can help that would be great

Filebeat ships files, it doesn't parse them.

If you use this - https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-module-apache2.html - it'll do the steps it describes so that they are parsed, but again Filebeat doesn't do that, it just sets up other steps to do it.

hi,
there is no documentation available for windows OS for enabling apache module

The commands are the same for Windows and other OS's.
