Hi people, i have a elk working with the logs of a samba file server
I want make graphics with unlink file but i have a lot of tmp files, i want filter this archives, i read a bit and only find placing "- " but nothing happend, i have the same result.

example of a log:
domain\admin ||hostname|domain|unlink|541b4a62.tmp

I want to show only the files actually deleted by the user

Any idea?

How do the logs show the deletion?

hi warkom,

domain\admin ||hostname|domain|unlink|541b4a62.tmp

unlink is how show the deletion and 541b4a62.tmp is the file
otrher example of write a file would:
domain\admin ||hostname|domain|pwrite|elasticsearch.conf

i can show all of the unlink log, but i need filter the .tmp

i can do it?

king regards,

Are you breaking the log line down into parts, eg the user, host, filename etc?

(Carlos Bordon) #5

Correct, this file server is a samba, in his configuration permit me specific what want appears in the log separete with |

I can do something but i found other files, with this line i can discard tmp files:
message:unlink !syslog_message:*.tmp

but i found others temporary files of word or excel like: original.xls and the tmp file ~$original.xls

now, i need discard ~$original.xls

Are you extracting each of the sections of the log file, as separated by |, into their own fields via Logstash or something?

(Carlos Bordon) #7

the records come from the samba file server, it automatically puts them in that format to separate each field

OK, but how does the data get into Elasticsearch?

Filebeat take the logs
