Is it possible to run beats agent as a container

Hi All,

I am quite new to Elastic and have a very basic doubt.

I understand that beats is used as an agent running on edge node shipping the data to Elasticsearch. It is installed as an RPM or DEB package but can it be installed as a container inside the edge node ?

For e.g. I can see filebeat inside a docker as shown in below link, but I am not sure how can it monitor the log files generated on the host system

Hi @ACodingfreak

The answer is yes ... But you will need to volume mount the paths of the host logs / directory to the filebeat docker container and make sure permissions are good etc..etc..

That is docker related and you should read about it.
