Logstash not receiving beats input


#1

Hello,

i have no issues importing data from beats to elasticsearch, however after changing output to logstash in the beats config, logstash do not import data to elasticsearch. No stdout is printed in the shell running logstash.
Please help,thanks.

Filebeat config file:

#==========================  Modules configuration ============================
filebeat.modules:




#------------------------------- Osquery Module ------------------------------
- module: osquery
  result:
    enabled: true

   






#=========================== Filebeat prospectors =============================

   



#------------------------------ Log prospector --------------------------------
- type: log

  
  enabled: true

   paths:
- /var/log/*.log
- C:\Users\Downloads\data\Test\*

output.logstash:
  
  hosts: ["localhost:5044"]

Logstash config file:

input {
  beats {
    port => 5044
  }
}



output {
  elasticsearch {
    hosts => ["localhost:9200"]
	manage_template => false
    index => "beatslogstashsample"
	
  }
  stdout { codec => rubydebug }
}

Is Filebeat able to connect to logstash? You should look into filebeat and logstash logs to see if that is the case.

seems like logstash receive filebit input but the index is not found in elasticsearch.
last few lines of Output in shell running logstash:

This tells that your logstash pipeline has been correctly instantiated, but do filebeat logs also tell that filebeat can reach logstash?
Filebeat logs are normally in /var/log/filebeat.


#6

Have made some changes in the filebeats config file,logs are now shown in filebeats debugging but index is not shown in elasticsearch. Stdout are still not printed in shell running logstash.Please advice.Thanks.

Filebeats config:

#=========================== Filebeat inputs =============================

filebeat.inputs:

# Each - is an input. Most options can be set at the input level, so
# you can use different inputs for various configurations.
# Below are the input specific configurations.

- type: log

  # Change to true to enable this input configuration.
  enabled: true

  # Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.
  paths:
    #- /var/log/*.log
    - C:\Users\Downloads\data\Test\*.log


#============================= Filebeat modules ===============================

filebeat.config.modules:
  # Glob pattern for configuration loading
  path: ${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml

  # Set to true to enable config reloading
  reload.enabled: false

#----------------------------- Logstash output --------------------------------
output.logstash:
  hosts: ["localhost:5044"]

#8

Deleted old registry files in the filebeats data folder each time before running filebeats,this seems to solve the issue.
