Urgent help needed : Filebeat xml question


(Anshul Pandey) #1

Hi,

I am trying to read IO logs files using file beat and having issues with the getting all the lines of xml into the logstash.
here is sample of what i am trying to read https://play.golang.org/p/wZL0Vd3tx_

The problem is this sample works , however event coming from file beat always misses the closing tag.

The same xml when read via File beats filter, is giving me in_xml as following

<WSI_transaction>  <request_header>    <message_protocol>1</message_protocol>    <request_id>,mydi</request_id>    <authentication_data>      <facility>Facilty</facility>      <username>AVD</username>      <password>12333</password>    </authentication_data>  </request_header>  <body>    <request_data>      <request_version>1</request_version>      <operation>aCD</operation>    </request_data>  </body>

Note the WSI_transaction closing tag is missing.

I have following as file beat multiple line settings, Since my xml can start with any of the following tags, hence the first line has multiple tags for first match.

 multiline.pattern: '^(<Envelope>|<WSI_transaction>|<Requests>|<Results>)'
  multiline.negate: true
  multiline.match: after

logstash config uses greedy data to get everything

match => { "message" => "%{GREEDYDATA:inxml}" }

Can i can some help in understanding this behavior ?

  1. filebeat version?

  2. Is the closing tag send as a separate event?

  3. indentation of multiline-namespace looks somewhat off. This just copy'n paste?
