I want to send logs from a windows machine to windows elk server


#1

my logs are located in d:\app\logs in a windows machine. i want to send logs to elk server. I tried using file beat.
I dont see any errors and could'nt see any logs on elk server. Can anyone provide me configs for filebeat on client and elk server. My another question is do we need to install filebeat on both the machines? can we directly send the output from filebeat to elasticsearch?


Do we need to install filebeats on client and elk server

Filebeat can send data directly to Elasticsearch. You do not need a Filebeat on the Elasticsearch server.

I recommend following the Getting Started guide.
