Is reading elastic logs from a node directly possible?

Hi all

Is there a way to read logs (sent to elastic by Logstash) directly from an Elasticsearch node? Our Elasticsearch version is 8.30.
Because of a Ransomware attack, we currently do not have access to the Kibana VM. If possible, we would like to refrain from setting up a new Kibana VM.

Alternatively, is there a way to read them with curl -XGET?



I am sorry to hear that you were the target of a ransomware attack. The good news is that you do not need to setup a Kibana instance - you can use the normal Elasticsearch REST API to search your logs: Search API | Elasticsearch Guide [8.9] | Elastic

Best regards


Hi Wolfram

I will try that.
Thanks for the tip.

Best Regards.
