And this is OS Version:
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.8 (Tikanga)

I'm using Filebeat 5.3.

I noticed that if I comment the second prospector all works fine, but I don't know why.

Thanks


#2

I tried the same configuration with Filebeat 5.2.2 and it works.


(ruflin) #3

Sounds to be the same panic as here https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/3917 But so far we assumed it only happens with empty paths. I will look into this.


(ruflin) #4

@AndreAga There is an indentation issue in prospector 2. I assume it should not be related to this, but could you try to fix it?


#5

Hi ruflin, I confirm that in the second prospector the '/*/' points to some empty dirs.
The indentation error is related to the copy/paste. In the original file the indentation is ok :slight_smile:


(ruflin) #6

Good to know. I need to find out why a prospector stops when a path is empty.


(ruflin) #7

@AndreAga I just opened https://github.com/elastic/beats/pull/4037 to fix the issue. But I'm not 100% sure yet this will solve your issue. The issue that is solved in this PR is that in case one prospector has an invalid configuration and filebeat is stopped, it makes sure the shutdown happens without a panic. You mentioned that in your case it works with 5.2.2 but not 5.3. This would indicate that your prospector config is probably fine and it is a different issue.

Could you try the following for me? Remove all prospector configurations except the one that you removed before and see if filebeat starts properly? And if not, what error you get?


#8

Thank you, ruflin. I'll let you know as soon as I'll be able to test it.
