Kibana' Stack Monitoring is missing Logstash instance(s)

Hello World!

I updated my Elastic stack from 7.17.7 release to 7.17.8, and now Kibana's monitoring app is missing the "Logstash" instance(s).

I checked all the settings, and I didn't find any mistakes. I then double-checked it using "log.level: debug" and I did not see any errors; Logstash instance can connect to Elasticsearch (management and monitoring), and yet, as I mentioned not appearing in the Kibana monitoring app, however, Elasticsearch and Kibana appear in the list just fine..

Please advise)
Thanks in advance!

Do you see logstash monitoring index under your index management?


@bhavyarm - negative, I assume if the indices were there, Kibana would have display the Logstash section, I do have these though:

Can you tell us more about how you're running your setup?
Are you using Internal Collection or Metricbeat collection? Can you share your Logstash (and Metricbeat if you're using that) configs (please remove any sensitive data before)?

The fact that you don't have any indices for Logstash tells me something is wrong with either the connection to the monitoring cluster or with the metrics collection. If you're using Metricbeat, errors will be sent to the metricbeat-* index so you can check there if you have any errors from collecting the metrics.

hello, @miltonhultgren

The internal monitoring has been deprecated since 7.16, and I am using latest 7.17 branch with Metricbeat...

After digging around some more, I believe I have found the issue :wink: Turns out the Logstash metrics settings were not updated as the rest of the stack, and that's why Logstash instances aren't appearing in the Monitoring app of Kibana.

I just updated and now the Logstash instances are appearing in Kibana' monitoring app!

Thanks for everything)
