I have a log file in a Machine1 (/home/log/logfile.log) and a logstash in Machine2.
How can I do to read remote logfile ?
I tried with :
path => "IP address/home/log/logfile.log"
start_position => "beginning"
Is this correct or there are other tools to use ?
Logstash can only read files in mounted file systems. In this case you'd have to mount the file system containing /home/log/logfile.log from the other machine via e.g. NFS. One normally installs a shipper (like Logstash or Filebeat) on each machine that has logs that should be collected.
Hope this thread is more related to my query.
No! Please start a new thread (in the Filebeat category) for your questions.
