Install filebeat locally to get access to a server?


(Mohamed) #1

Hello,
I recently started learning ELK and I succeed to parse my XML files locally. But now I would like to have access to my server to get access to all of my XML files (upgrade every 30 seconds)
I have the ip-address of my server and my question is: I should install Filebeat locally and configure my filebeat.yml to get access to the server or I should install the Filebeat in the server and then indicate my locally address?

Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

That is a question of style, but most people install filebeat on the edge, which is to say on the local computer.
