[SOLVED] Filebeat creating high CPU usage



I have filebeat installed on a handful of CentOS servers. Most installations are behaving well. However, one server constatntly reports extremely high CPU usage, as in the following from top:

30459 root 20 0 211m 14m 4968 S 99.7 0.8 3724:20 filebeat

Note the 99.7% CPU usage! Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Thank you.

Any log output from filebeat or logstash?

Which filebeat version have you installed?

Can you share your filebeat config?

Same as me ? https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/781

Do not set scan_frequency to 0.


Apologies. My filebeat.conf was misconfigured. Once fixed, the problem went away.
