modules.go is looking in the wrong directory, as the modules are located elsewhere.
How to solve it in a correct way?

thanks in advance

Hi @lara,

I'm wondering, how did you install Filebeat, and how are you running it? Looks like home path is wrong there, it should be /usr/share/filebeat/

Best regards

Hi Carlos,

standard "yum" installation for what I think.
I know that home path should be /usr/share/filebeat/ and the "modules" are right there.

thanks in advance for any hint

uhm, how do you launch filebeat? RPM packaging includes a wrapper script that we put in the PATH (/usr/bin/filebeat), it configures the proper paths for everything. So everything should work by default if you just run filebeat in a terminal.

As I am in testing phase I launch and stop manually in the following way:

/usr/share/filebeat/bin/filebeat -c filebeat.yml -path.config /etc/filebeat -e
