Metricbeat version 6.4.0 install on CentOS7 is missing modules


(xtruthx) #1

I installed a actual metricebeat in version 6.4.0 from the actual repository on a CentOS 7 in a patched Version 7.5.
The install packages is only 70MB big and all modules are missing. It is reproducable for me on fresh vm's.

So my question is befor i open an issue. Does anyone experienced the same like me? Is there a bug?

If i installed a version pinned package metricbeat-6.3.2-1.x86_64 the installed packages size is around 110MB and modules are also installed.

Note to myself and for all others. After some resarch in the system and after looking for an issue on github i found the answer for that. The existing issue is already closed. And if you analyze the installed files from packagae with "rpm -ql metricbeat" you can see that the modules are deployed under
/usr/share/metricbeat/modules.d

So easy solution as described in the issue is to copy them to the metricbeat folder:
sudo cp -r /usr/share/metricbeat/modules.d /etc/metricbeat/

It is all described in that issue: #8104
