How do you check if Filebeat is sending data to Logstash?
Subsequently, one may also ask, how do I test Filebeat to Logstash?
How to verify filebeat parsed log data count
- Look in the registry file (location depends on the way you installed, it's /var/lib/filebeat/registry on DEB/RPM) and check how far filebeat got into the files.
- Increase logging verbosity in filebeat to info level and check if it writes data.
- Increase verbosity of Logstash to check that data reaches LS.
Additionally, how do I ship logs to Logstash? To send logs to Sematext Logs (or your own Elasticsearch cluster) via HTTP, you can use the elasticsearch output. You'll need to specify that you want the HTTP protocol, the host and port of an Elasticsearch server. For Sematext Logs, those would be logsene-receiver.sematext.com and port 443.
Correspondingly, how does Filebeat send data to Logstash?
Filebeat, as the name implies, ships log files. In an ELK-based logging pipeline, Filebeat plays the role of the logging agent — installed on the machine generating the log files, tailing them, and forwarding the data to either Logstash for more advanced processing or directly into Elasticsearch for indexing.
