Metrticbeat does not output processes metrics on Win 2003


(Gili Sade) #1

Hi
We have 3 - 2003 r2 windows (64X) - servers
i have intalled metricbeat 5.0.0 on all three.
Now the service works fine and metric sets are getting to elasticsearch - all but processes metrics.
This only happens on these specific servers (i have other servers that are WIN 2008-2012 where the same config works fine)
So I was wondering if the problem might be in the server's OS version - maybe in need to configure somthings differently

this is how the metricbeat YAML looks like
metricbeat.modules:

#------------------------------- System Module -------------------------------
- module: system
  metricsets:
    # CPU stats
    - cpu

    # System Load stats
    #- load

    # Per CPU core stats
    #- core

    # IO stats
    - diskio

    # Per filesystem stats
    - filesystem

    # File system summary stats
    #- fsstat

    # Memory stats
    - memory

    # Network stats
    - network

    # Per process stats
    - process
  enabled: true
  period: 60s
  processes: ['.*']

thanks for your help :slight_smile:

Please upgrade to Metricbeat 5.1.1 and retest. Then if the problem persists please check the log file for errors and check for events sent to Elasticsearch that match metricset.name:process AND _exists_:error.

There were changes in 5.0.1 that affect Windows 2003.
