I have elk stack installed on my ubuntu and everything works fine.
I installed filebeat on windows 8.1 to transfer the log file to elasticsearch (found on ubuntu) and faced with a problem.
When starting the filebeat service with the "start-service filebeat" command in powershell, no data is transferred (no new index appears in kibana) but when I run the command ".\Filebeat.exe -e" in powershell, the new index appears in kibana.
Tell me what am I doing wrong?
My filebeat.yml configuration:
- c:\log\ test.log
