Logs Not displaying in kibana while using newly created index but displaying when using default logstash-*


#1

Hi,

i am configured server with fluentd, elasticsearch and kibana to ship logs to server from client node and display in kibana.
When i am configuring kibana index using default logstash-* index logs are displaying in kibana, but when i am using the index which i created is not displaying logs in kibana.
Please help to troubleshoot the issue.
elasticsearch and kibana version -- 5.x.x

It looks like the issuepredtool index does not have any data in it.


#3

I think issuepredtool have data.. please see below output.

curl -i -XHEAD http://localhost:9200/issuepredtool
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
content-type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
content-length: 764

curl -i -XHEAD http://localhost:9200/logstash-2017.09.07
HTTP/1.1 200 OK
content-type: application/json; charset=UTF-8
content-length: 776

According to the output from your cat indices call it does not. The index exists, but is empty. Why would running a HEAD request indicate whether the index has data or not?


#5

i am not sure how to check data.. got some command while searching , that is why ... thanks ..

could you please help why the logs are not loading in to new index (issuepredtool)... but the logs are loading in to default index (logstash-*).


(Christian Dahlqvist) #6

There is probably something wrong in your ingest pipeline. Have you checked the logs?


#7

couldn't see any error logs from fluentd or elasticsearch

i searched the error logs in elasticsearch , fluentd and message logs. i could see only the below error in message log file.
