Problem to start filebeat

(Lee) #1

II set a ELK Server( and I installed a filebeat ( using the shipper for apache logs.

When i run a filebeat, normally transfer a access log for a few seconds, then I got an error message..

Then This is my filebeat config.

List of prospectors to fetch data.

# Each - is a prospector. Below are the prospector specific configurations
# Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.
# To fetch all ".log" files from a specific level of subdirectories
# /var/log//.log can be used.
# For each file found under this path, a harvester is started.
# Make sure not file is defined twice as this can lead to unexpected behaviour.
# - /var/log/*.log
- /data1/apache/apache229/logs/access_log
# - c:\programdata\elasticsearch\logs*

Type of the files. Based on this the way the file is read is decided.

  # The different types cannot be mixed in one prospector
  # Possible options are:
  # * log: Reads every line of the log file (default)
  # * stdin: Reads the standard in
  input_type: log


Elasticsearch as output

# Array of hosts to connect to.
# Scheme and port can be left out and will be set to the default (http and 9200)
# In case you specify and additional path, the scheme is required: http://localhost:9200/path
# IPv6 addresses should always be defined as: https://[2001:db8::1]:9200

hosts: ["localhost:9200"]


Logstash as output

# The Logstash hosts
hosts: [""]
# Number of workers per Logstash host.
#worker: 1
# Optional load balance the events between the Logstash hosts
#loadbalance: true
# Optional index name. The default index name depends on the each beat.
# For Packetbeat, the default is set to packetbeat, for Topbeat
# top topbeat and for Filebeat to filebeat.
index: filebeat

How can I fix it ?
Please help me ASAP.......

What does your Logstash configuration look like? Have you verified that you're able to connect to from the Filebeat machine?

(Lee) #3

Yes. I checked a connection between apache server and logstash server.
There is a normal.

This is my logstash configuration

input {
tcp {
port => "11030"

output {
elasticsearch {
host => "eplog01"
index => "sharepoint-%{+YYYY.MM.dd}"

Use the beats input with Filebeat, not tcp.
