VxLAN packet decription - packetbeat


I have the same issue like Docker overlay networks

I'm using AWS mirroring to send traffic from one Network Interface to another EC2 instance where I have installed ES. AWS is using VXLAN and sends the traffic on UDP 4789 port. Tcpdump is decoding the packets correctly, but packetbeat is only showing the VXLAN traffic:

10:54:57.937812 06:1d:f1:cb:ae:16 > 06:68:cb:f8:8f:56, ethertype IPv4 (0x0800), length 363: > VXLAN, flags [I] (0x08), vni 13686788
06:bf:dc:16:87:aa > 06:4b:8e:2d:e6:76, ethertype IPv4 (0x0800), length 313: > UDP, length 271

10:54:57.946287 06:1d:f1:cb:ae:16 > 06:68:cb:f8:8f:56, ethertype IPv4 (0x0800), length 147: > VXLAN, flags [I] (0x08), vni 13686788
06:4b:8e:2d:e6:76 > 06:bf:dc:16:87:aa, ethertype IPv4 (0x0800), length 97: > UDP, length 55

I have bolded the traffic that I see in ES index, but I wanted to see the content (second line).

Please advise how to overcome this? This feature request looks closed: Support packet recognition within VxLAN · Issue #1283 · elastic/beats · GitHub
