Problems logstash directory - link with FBeat


THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP ! My message is to long but this really short in reality :slight_smile: (I'm french who write you !)

I have a problems with installation and configuration to Logstash and Fbeat.

I have follow the started from officiel website (

ElasticS : OK
Kibana ; OK.

Logstash : NOK
FileBeat : NOK (effect of NOK logstash)

So, for logstash :

rpm --install logstashxxxxx5.1

cd logstash-5.1.1 : NOK (doesn't match)

To perform this test command : "./logstash -e 'input { stdin { } } output { stdout {} }'", I must GO IN DIRECTORY : "/usr/share/logstash/bin/"

And, this is result :

WARNING: Could not find logstash.yml which is typically located in $LS_HOME/config or /etc/logstash. You can specify the path using --path.settings. Continuing using the defaults

Could not find log4j2 configuration at path /usr/share/logstash/config/ Using default config which logs to console

The stdin plugin is now waiting for input:
17:01:34.513 [[main]-pipeline-manager] INFO logstash.pipeline - Starting pipeline {"id"=>"main", "pipeline.workers"=>2, "pipeline.batch.size"=>125, "pipeline.batch.delay"=>5, "pipeline.max_inflight"=>250}

17:01:34.543 [[main]-pipeline-manager] INFO logstash.pipeline - Pipeline main started
17:01:34.679 [Api Webserver] INFO logstash.agent - Successfully started Logstash API endpoint {:port=>9600}

FOR FileBeat :

rpm -vi filebeat-5.1.1-x86_64.rpm

vi /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml : I change juste Logstash output.

#-------------------------- Elasticsearch output ------------------------------
hosts: ["localhost:9200"]

#----------------------------- Logstash output --------------------------------
hosts: [""]

To test my configuration with this command : "/ -configtest -e" , I must go in DIRECTORY :"/usr/share/filebeat/bin" and execute this : " -configtest -e"

Config OK

So, to link with logstash (and no with elastic), i follow this link (

In first, my logstash isn't in /opt/logstash.....

To execute : "./bin/logstash-plugin install logstash-input-beats" , i go in "/usr/share/logstash/bin" :

=> logstash-plugin install logstash-input-beats
bash: logstash-plugin: command not found

...... so bad :sleepy:

I see i haven't any file in /etc/logstash/conf.d/

My paths are wrong mayby, i need help ... :frowning:
