Not getting logs from filebeat to logstash

(Narasimha Vayala) #1

I am new to ELK stack, I am trying to get the logs from filebeat to logstash and display on stand output(terminal).

Filebeat configuration:


  • type: log

    Change to true to enable this input configuration.

    enabled: true

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.


    • /home/narasimha/DevOps/logstash-tutorial.log
      #- c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*


Array of hosts to connect to.

hosts: ["localhost:9200"]

#----------------------------- Logstash output --------------------------------

The Logstash hosts

hosts: ["localhost:5044"]

Logstash configuration:

input {
beats {
port => "5044"

The filter part of this file is commented out to indicate that it is


filter {


output {
stdout { codec => rubydebug }

  1. After above configuration changes, I started filebeat service, and after that i run below command.
    sudo ./filebeat -e -c filebeat.yml -d "publish"

The following logs keep on generating.
2018-09-28T13:56:49.521+0530 INFO [monitoring] log/log.go:149 Total non-zero metrics {"monitoring": {"metrics": {"beat":{"cpu":{"system":{"ticks":70,"time":{"ms":75}},"total":{"ticks":130,"time":{"ms":142},"value":130},"user":{"ticks":60,"time":{"ms":67}}},"info":{"ephemeral_id":"a841dc35-2fac-4178-ba86-67c1c9f7169b","uptime":{"ms":193709}},"memstats":{"gc_next":4194304,"memory_alloc":2145872,"memory_total":5117432,"rss":22495232}},"filebeat":{"events":{"added":1,"done":1},"harvester":{"open_files":0,"running":0}},"libbeat":{"config":{"module":{"running":0},"reloads":1},"output":{"type":"logstash"},"pipeline":{"clients":0,"events":{"active":0,"filtered":1,"total":1}}},"registrar":{"states":{"current":1,"update":1},"writes":{"success":2,"total":2}},"system":{"cpu":{"cores":4},"load":{"1":1.35,"15":1.43,"5":1.45,"norm":{"1":0.3375,"15":0.3575,"5":0.3625}}}}}}

The same time I have tested the logstash config it says Ok, after that I run below command.

bin/logstash -f first-pipeline.conf --config.reload.automatic

It has stopped at the below line, after that I am not getting any logs from filebeat.

[INFO ] 2018-09-28 13:56:11.242 [[main]<beats] Server - Starting server on port: 5044
[INFO ] 2018-09-28 13:56:11.597 [Api Webserver] agent - Successfully started Logstash API endpoint {:port=>9600}

Please help on the same
