I'm using elasticsearch w/ Kibana 4.0 w/ the AWS managed setup. I'm working on figuring out if all my beats are actually reporting so I'm checking as I install topbeat on each new system throughout my environment. I have some instances running in Rackspace, AWS, and Azure, all that have to report to the AWS managed elasticsearch instance. Currently I've got the beats service started on a few machines, and when I go back to restart with debugging I'm running into this situation...
ubuntu@ip-xxx-yy-zz-ddd:/etc/topbeat$ sudo /etc/init.d/topbeat stop ubuntu@ip-xxx-yy-zz-ddd:/etc/topbeat$ sudo /etc/init.d/topbeat start -c ./topbeat.yml -e -v -d "*" ubuntu@ip-xxx-yy-zz-ddd:/etc/topbeat$
I stop topbeat with "
sudo /etc/init.d/topbeat stop" and then start it up again with "
sudo /etc/init.d/topbeat start -c ./topbeat.yml -e -v -d "*"" but then I get nothing after that. If I just issue a "
sudo /etc/init.d/topbeat start" I get "
/usr/bin/topbeat-god already running."
Why is the debugging/logging data not coming out at stdout? Any troubleshooting idea?
