Install Filebeat in remote server (Different from log servers)


(Abderrahmane K) #1

I have 4 servers to check logs from, but I don't have access to install stuff in them, so I can't install Filebeat there.
So I installed Filebeat locally (Just to test), and I was wondering if there's any way to get the logs from those servers? Like, configure Filebeat to retrieve the logs from the servers, so I can send them to Logstash and do the rest.
Thank you.

you can use a network path or valume in the filebeat config file to get the logs
