I was at the Elasticon 2018 and I was told that the ability to monitor filebeats inside of Kibana was available in 6.2 just like we have it for elasticsearch, kibana & logstash. I am not seeing how to turn that on inside of filebeats? Any help would be appreciated.
Are you using X-Pack? You need X-pack to do that, the basic license, which is free, allows monitoring.
I think I just found it ... xpack.monitoring.enabled: true
tried putting the below settings in my filebeat.yml but getting the below error.
2018-03-21T19:14:03.430Z ERROR instance/beat.go:667 Exiting: missing required field accessing 'xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.hosts' (source:'/etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml')
Added that line it asked for and it seemed to work...
