I´ve been using filebeat, and I´m trying to resolve an issue when I start it in background.
I would like to start it to throwing log information for the startup and shutdown but I cannot find a way to make it works.
This is how I´m running the program
./filebeat -e -c filebeat.yml &> /var/log/filebeat.log
But checking filebeat.log it´s empty
Any idea how to run filebeat with output log?
./filebeat -e -c filebeat.yml -d "*" will give you very verbose output.
I need the output in a file since the program is started by ansible so I cannot see the output on console.
You can configure logging to a file in the filebeat.yml. See the documentation.
jesus!, how I miss that part of the conf file!, I did not seen it. Thanks!
