Transport to logstash over HTTP

(Akshay Shah) #1

I want to transport the logs using Filebeat on a FreeBSD box to a logstash server over HTTP due to some restrictions

Is there a way to use HTTP (port 80)?

Hello @akshaynshah this is currently not possible with the current Filebeat outputs, the current way to send data from FB to Logstash is one of the following:

  • The Logstash output which uses the beats input on the other side.
  • The Kafka output and the Kafka input on the Logstash side.
  • The Redis output and the Redis input on the Logstash side.

Theses options give us a bit more control over the reliability of the transmission.
