WARNING: extreme ELK newbie....
Good afternoon ELK friends,
I am extremely new to ELK... and I apologize in advanced if any of my questions seem elementary.
What I'm trying to do, is simply visualize in Kibana from a file called "/var/log/test". The only thing my file contains is the word "on".
I want to create a visualization, searching for the word "on" in the index I created via Logstash using the file, and any time the file in /var/log/test is changed to "off" or anything else, I want Kibana to dynamically show this.
The problem is, I can't seem to figure out how to use Kibana to search for a specific string and I'm not sure where to start. I'm not sure if it's Logstash configuration or Kibana configuration.
If anyone could help or point me to a topic that might have already discovered this... I would be extremely grateful!!
Thanks for your time!
