Multiple inputs

I am testing filebeat to see if it can read multiple files based on log_type i can make decision as to which index the logs have to go in elasticsearch from logstash.


- input_type: log
  enabled: true
    - C:\data\log\eis.log
  fields: {log_type: eis}

- input_type: log
  enabled: true
    - C:\data\log\sa.log
  fields: {log_type: sa}
  multiline.match: after
  multiline.pattern: '^[[:space:]]+(at|\.{3})\b|^Caused by:'
  multiline.negate: false
  multiline.match: after

  path: "c:/var"
  filename: "filebeat.log"

The above configuration is reading only 1 file.

Hi @Raghuveer_SJ,

Your configuration for multiple input files is looking good. It will read multiple files. Kindly verify the log files you have mentioned are present in it's path or not.

Remarks: If you are configuring multiline then, remove duplicate line "multiline.match".

My sample configuration file is as follows:
