Unable to define multiple log file location in filebeat


(Punit Bangade) #1

I am trying to configure multiple file location in filebeat.yml but its not sending the logs
eg paths: - D:\logs\*.logs - D:\logs\INT1\*.logs
Can you please help to resolve the issue

Did you literally write this into your config file? paths: - D:\logs\*.logs - D:\logs\INT1\*.logs

This is not valid YAML list. You need to use newlines or use JSON style lists. Plus: the setting must be added to a prospector like:

filebeat.prospectors:
- ...
  paths:
    - 'D:\logs\*.logs'
    - 'D:\logs\INT1\*.logs'

Note: Use single quotes for windows file paths.

It worked with single quotes
