Working with gzipped files


I have to work with a lot of gzipped text files but it seems Filebeat can't read them. Is there any way to read the gzipped files in a given folder and ship those to a Kafka cluster?
I saw that maybe I could work with Logstash but I'm not sure that it'd be efficient.

Thank you!

No. Filebeat does not currently support reading gzipped files.

If you setup a job to copy the files to a location that logstash is watching then that may be a good workaround.
