Topbeat logs not showed in kibana

(marc) #1


This is weird because yesterday i could see a graphic with topbeat metrics. However, sinoce 02:00 am i can't se anything coming from topbeat i kibana. Although the logs are received in elasticsearch.
What can i do to isolate this error? where it comes from?

You can try to use the Kibana Discover tab to check what events are in ES.

Yes i did.
That's weird. In discovery i receive logs coming from topbeat. They look ok.

"_index": "topbeat-2017.05.30",

As you can see, in proc.cpu.user_p there's data (0.40... means 40% as i can see in discovery tab)
However in visualize i see nothing.
i created a area chart, metric is average by proc.user.cpu_p, then x axis is timestamp... but nothing is showed

In settings undex topbeat-* index, the proc.user.cp_p field is of type number and format: Percentage

What i'm missing?

Do you mean proc.cpu.user_p? I don't see a cpu_p field.

Btw, I strongly recommend upgrading to Metricbeat 5.x. It's compatible with ES 2.x and it fixes tons of things.

Hi Tudor,

Yes, i ment proc.cpu.user_p
I solved it by reinstalling the template so you can close this topic.

In case someone is having this issue, try reinstalling topbeat template.
