Support Needed on Metricbeat setup issue

I realized my Logstash 's log having some errors, referring to some Permission denied errors to these files in /var/lob/logstash/ ..... but when I do ls command, I cant really see the files within it, even with root account?

ls -lah

is your problem fixed or still your metricbeat service is showing not running?


(Luke) #26

Hi @Tek_Chand, I am able to start the service without much error. But when I went to check the service status, it shows me the errors above in my previous comment. "Failed to start Matricbeat is a lightweight shipper for metrics...."

Can you please check the error log in /var/log/metricbeat/metricbeat or /var/log/syslog if you are using ubuntu machine else check in another file according to your OS.

Logs can be useful to fix the issue.

In the log, I do see this error. So is it that I need to enable the settings under elasticsearch.yml configuration file?
