Logstash Module

Hi Guys, I use the Cloud-Based Elastic/Kibana. I would like to know if there is a difference between Logstash module in Filebeats and Logstash installed directly on server,


Yes, there is a huge difference: The FileBeat Logstash module is just for parsing the Logstash logs. It will NOT run any logstash pipelines.

Best regards

Thanks Wolfram,

In this project:


I guess I am going the create a Logstash pipeline then?

Yes, that's right. This creates a Logstash pipeline reading from a JDBC datasource. JDBC datasources are only supported on Logstash as of now so you will require a Logstash installation. Of course it makes sense to monitor the Logs of this installation using the Filebeat Logstash module...
