Very new to ELK and trying to set up the infrastructure to centrally log our in house application logs. What I am trying to set up looks something like this:
Client Server UI
Filebeat => Logstash => Redis => Elasticsearch <= Kibana < = > httpd
v-1.0.1 v- 2.1.1-1 v-3.0.5 v-2.1.1 v-4.3.1 2.2.15-47
So far I have about 15 app logs making there way to Elasticsearch and are viewable via Kibana. I'm not sure however if Redis is actually in play in my current configuration however. If I cycle all the apps to generate a lot of log activity, then watch the redis queue via redis-cli llen redis, but the queue always remains at zero.
Im guessing I have a configuration error on my part, but was also reading that redis may be deprecated at the current version ? Does this mean it is no longer needed/recommended for as a queuing mechanism for ES?
