Producing Arm builds with beats packer

(Kai5263499) #1

Has anyone tried producing linux arm builds (deb or rpm) with the beats packer docker images?

Not with beats-packer yet, but Topbeat and Filebeat were reported to work on ARM via simple Go cross-compiling, and you can find nightly binaries here.

If you want to add support for the ARM platform to beats-packer, you'll have to fiddle a bit with the script from the docker images and then create "arm-deb" and "arm-rpm" platforms. There is a ticket for it here, btw. Also, note that we are in the process of moving the beats-packer to the main beats repository, here, but feel free to work with the old repository if you prefer.

Thanks! I am specifically interested in producing ARM builds of packbeat, ultimately for my Raspberry Pi
