Only see data after services are restarted

I am setting up NXLOG, Packetbeat, winlogbeat, Topbeat and Filebeat aswell as the ELK Stack. Kibana only displays data once I restart the Beats programs. NXLOG and WINLOGBEAT refuse to display anything eventhough I have an output file which does have informaiton in it, so the data from these windows log gatherers cant send anything to ES.
So all in all, information is only sent once I restart the services. After that, nothing.
Help :frowning: ?
