Support for handling rotated files as .gz files in filebeat


(AN) #1

Does filebeat support compressed files?
Our java application is writing the logs to log.json file using logback RollingFileAppender.
After 5MB the file is rotated like below :
arch_2017-10-23.1.gz
arch_2017-10-23.2.gz and so on.

Can I specify the arch*.gz in the paths for filebeat to capture the data in the rotated files?

Filebeat version used : 5.6.x

No, compressed files are not yet supported. For more information/progress have a look at this enhancement request.
