I'm trying to setup metricbeat to monitor filebeat stats. But when I tried the beats module for doing so in my metricbeat config, I'm getting this error:
error message from metricbeat logs:
Error fetching data for metricset beat.stats: error making http request: Get http://filebeat_ip:5044/stats: dial tcp filebeat_ip:5044: connect: connection refused
metricbeat.modules: - module: beat metricsets: - stats - state period: 10s hosts: ["filebeat_ip:5044"]
where filebeat_ip is the ip where my filebeat is running, which's the same machine as my metricbeat.
Can someone please help me figure out as to why I'm getting this error?
