Metricbeat: Not able to display the data in dashboard


(Rahul Nama) #1

Hello Team

on the Immediate requirement, I've installed metricbeat.
I followed the getting started guide. Everything was fine but I'm not able to visualise the data in the dashboard. you can see below

Metricbeat.yml file

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

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

  # Period on which files under path should be checked for changes
  #reload.period: 10s

#==================== Elasticsearch template setting ==========================

setup.template.settings:
  index.number_of_shards: 1
  index.codec: best_compression
tags: ["service-X", "web-tier"]

# Optional fields that you can specify to add additional information to the
# output.
fields:
  env: staging


#============================== Kibana =====================================

# Starting with Beats version 6.0.0, the dashboards are loaded via the Kibana API.
# This requires a Kibana endpoint configuration.
setup.kibana:

  # Kibana Host
  # Scheme and port can be left out and will be set to the default (http and 5601)
  # In case you specify and additional path, the scheme is required: http://localhost:5601/path
  # IPv6 addresses should always be defined as: https://[2001:db8::1]:5601
  host: "localhost:5601"


#-------------------------- Elasticsearch output ------------------------------
output.elasticsearch:
  # Array of hosts to connect to.
  hosts: ["localhost:9200"]

  # Optional protocol and basic auth credentials.
  #protocol: "https"
  #username: "elastic"
  #password: "changeme"

#================================ Logging =====================================

logging.level: info
logging.to_files: true
logging.files:
  path: /var/log/metricbeat
  name: metricbeat
  keepfiles: 7
  permissions: 0644

# Sets log level. The default log level is info.
# Available log levels are: error, warning, info, debug
logging.level: debug

# At debug level, you can selectively enable logging only for some components.
# To enable all selectors use ["*"]. Examples of other selectors are "beat",
# "publish", "service".
#logging.selectors: ["*"]

#============================== Xpack Monitoring ===============================
# metricbeat can export internal metrics to a central Elasticsearch monitoring
# cluster.  This requires xpack monitoring to be enabled in Elasticsearch.  The
# reporting is disabled by default.

# Set to true to enable the monitoring reporter.
xpack.monitoring.enabled: true

# Uncomment to send the metrics to Elasticsearch. Most settings from the
# Elasticsearch output are accepted here as well. Any setting that is not set is
# automatically inherited from the Elasticsearch output configuration, so if you
# have the Elasticsearch output configured, you can simply uncomment the
# following line.
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch:`

I'm using metricbeat system module

- module: system

period: 10s
metricsets:
- cpu
#- load
- memory
- network
- process
- process_summary
- core
- diskio

- socket

processes: ['.*']
process.include_top_n:
by_cpu: 5 # include top 5 processes by CPU
by_memory: 5 # include top 5 processes by memory

I'm not sure where I went wrong. Please do suggest

Thanks for your time as always :slight_smile:

Could you please format the configuration and also attach the debug logs of your instance?

@kvch
by any chance, if you have time, can you please look in to this?
I hope this will help you. This is how I'm seeing data in Discover page of kibana
metricset: diskio


metricset: network

metricset.name: process_memory

metricset.name: Memory

metricset.name: cpu
