I have installed ELK stack on a single server and also filebeat on the same box. Configured filebeat.yml to send the sample log files . below is the fields:
Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.
Also i have configured the corresponding logstash conf file to look like this:
port => "5043"
The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is
hosts => [ "localhost:9200" ]
When i load the Kibana console i see the message "No default index pattern . You must select or create one to continue.
I am continously writing entries to my log file and logstash is running. But the data is not written to the ES indices.
My question is : Is there any different process to create the indices on ES or just defining in the filebeat.yml is enough and will be displayed in the kibana console.
