So filebeat is running my apache log, located in /var/log/httpd and the path I'm using is /var/log/httpd/* in the filebeats.yml file but from what I can tell it's doing nothing. I thought I should check the log file, changed it to debug mode, but nothing is being written to the log. My last log message was over half hour ago relating to [processor] and adding meta data.
I added the repository and installed it using yum and started the service with systemctl start filebeat.
I have it so it's going to logstash on 5044, but again there is nothing in this log either.
I'm finding it really hard to troubleshoot because I have no information to go on since nothing seems to be happening in the logs.
