Sending logs from filebeat to redis and then logstash

I am trying to send my logs from filebeat into redis and then from redis into logstash and elasticsearch.
My log file is in json format. What configuration is to be made in my filebeat.yml so that the output is redis. I am getting the error as
( Failed to RPUSH to redis list with ERR wrong number of arguments for 'rpush' command
2018-05-22T11:15:43.063+0530 ERROR pipeline/output.go:92
Failed to publish events: ERR wrong number of arguments for 'rpush' command).
Also what configuartion is to be made in my logstash.yml when my input is redis.


Could you please brief your use case that why are you implementing this mean what is the requirement and paste your pipeline here so that we can check the issue.


i want to make visualizations on kibana of my logs. the pipeline is as follows :
Filebeat - Redis - Logstash - Elasticsearch - Kibana.

The reason i have included redis in my pipeline is beacause it acts as a buffer and hence in case of data loss we can approach redis for that. But i am unable to send data from filebeat to redis itself.

Filebeat - Logstash - Elasticsearch - Kibana this pipeline is working fine. But when I am using redis, I am unable to load data from filebeat to redis.

I have attached the log file which m trying to send in the pipeline. Please provide the solution.

Could you please paste your filebeat.yml and redis config file here for further invesigation.



Below is the configuration of filebeat.yml


  • type: log
    enabled: true
    • C:\Users\adfgdhchg\Documents\My Received Files\json.log

path: ${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml
reload.enabled: false


  • module: redis
    enabled: true
    enabled: true

#------------------------------- Redis output ----------------------------------
hosts: ["localhost:6379"]
key: "logs"
db: 0
timeout: 5

And in redis I didnt make any configuration.

In logstash I have given input as

input {
redis {
hosts => "localhost:6379"
data_type => "list"
key => "logs"

and output as

elasticsearch {
hosts => "localhost:9200"
index => "finalmule_logs"
user=> elastic
stdout { }

Thank you
