Im just getting started with setting up an ELK stack. Currently my logstash server running on windows reads log files on the local machine and populates the elastic search server also running on the same machine. Simple enough??
Now i need to read actual log files which are on a unix server box. going through the documentation i cannot find a input plugin which would be able to connect to the unix box with authentication, access the log files and populate my ES server.
Any help would be appreciated to atleast get me pointed towards the right direction. Please and Thank you.
