Unable to read new records from same file after every 24 hours


(upendra pisupati) #1

I am reading single txt file with the help of filebeat in windows environment
(filebeat version “filebeat-1.3.0-windows”).
My file get updated every 24 hrs.
File is created at path 'E:\Log\Log2.txt'
To avoid reading stale data I have set ignore_older property in filebeat.yml file(ignore_older: 48h setting).
First time when filebeat starts it reads the data but next day not reading the file.
If we restart the service ,it read the other files at same path, but next day same issue occurs.
Basically I want filebeat to read new records from same file after every 24 hours.

I recommend you to update to the most recent release of filebeat which is 5.1.1. Could you test with this version?

Please also share your config and log files.
