Packetbeat not running


(Kumar) #1

I am trying to run packetbeat in centos 7, while running I am getting the below error

[root@packetbeat]# cat /var/log/packetbeat/packetbeat
2016-11-23T11:50:50+04:00 INFO Setup Beat: packetbeat; Version: 5.0.1

2016-11-23T11:50:50+04:00 CRIT Exiting: error initializing publisher: missing required field accessing 'output.elasticsearch.hosts'

in my packetbeat.yml I have specified elasticsearch

output.elasticsearch:

Array of hosts to connect to.

hosts: ["x.x.x.x:xxxx"]

I am not sure what I am missing, any idea?

the config file format (yaml) is sensitive to use of spaces and tabs. Looks like you did not indent hosts correctly.
