Filebeat does not currently have a module to process the ActiveMQ application logs.
Therefore we need to add the ActiveMQ application log location to the filebeat inputs.
Add the following to the end of the log input example, before the
- type: log enabled: true paths: - /path/to/log/activemq/data/activemq.log* fields: type: activemq multiline.pattern: ^\= multiline.match: before
We will be shipping to Logstash so that we have the option to run filters before the data is indexed.
Comment out the elasticsearch output block.
## Comment out elasticsearch output #output.elasticsearch: # hosts: ["localhost:9200"]
Let's check the configuration file is syntactically correct.
filebeat -e -c /etc/filebeat/filebeat.yml
Ok, time to start ingesting data!
sudo systemctl enable filebeat sudo systemctl start filebeat
