Have you read https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-getting-started.html?

Yeah warkolm but still i'm not getting it done.

Well what problems are you having?

Filebeat is running in my local machine. i need to establish a connection between filebeat in my machine to logstash in cloud server. i dont know exactly what to configure.

this is my filebeat.yml conf file in localmachine

  • input_type: log
    - C:\Program Files\Filebeat\logs*


    registry_file: .filebeat

hosts: [""]

hosts: [""]

now i want to send file to local machine to the ELK Stack on ubuntu 14.0.4,
i dont know to to do it,but file beat in localmachine is running correctly..

Do you want to send the logs to elasticsearch or logstash? I do not recommend to do both? Did you follow the getting started part about setting up Logstash or Elasticsearch? Are these (or at least one) services running?

Use syslog-ng to read local files on Ubuntu and pipe them up to Logstash (local or external).
