Unable to see filebeat in kibana

Filebeat yml:


Each - is an input. Most options can be set at the input level, so

you can use different inputs for various configurations.

Below are the input specific configurations.

  • type: log

    Change to true to enable this input configuration.

    enabled: true

    Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.

    #- /var/log/*.log

    • D:\ELK\logs*

#==================== Elasticsearch template setting ==========================

index.number_of_shards: 1


Array of hosts to connect to.

hosts: ["localhost:9200"]

Elastic indices:

health status index uuid pri rep docs.count docs.deleted store.size pri.store.size

I am a beginner to ELK. My set up is,

Filebeat -> ElasticSearch -> Kibana

I have gone through many threads but couldnt resolve my problem.
Any advise is highly appreciated. Thanks!
