Hello, i am fairly new to Filebeat and would like to do change the filebeat.yml entry
"- input_type: log
Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.
" upon starting Filebeat with command line to - D:\somewhere\here.log
with something like this
filebeat.exe -filebeat.yml - paths: - D:\somewhere\here.log
Is that at all possible or do i have to change the filebeat with something else beforehand?
The reason i am asking this, is because i have many agents on which i run Filebeat and sometimes the directory changes in which logs are being stored. Thank you
See Config file format docs.
The full path to the first entry prospectors path entry is
-E you can pass settings.
-E also has support for JSON-like arrays.
Preparing the config file a little for more convenience:
- input_type: log
I can run filebeat via
fielbeat.exe -c X:\path\to\filebeat.yml -E logs.paths='path1,path2,path3'
Cool, that was exactly what i was looking for, thanks a lot!
