Ship axonius logs to logstash
Step 1 - Setup Syslog Output
On your Axonius web interface, go to System Settings > Global Settings > Syslog Settings.
Select Use Syslog.
Enter the IP address of your remote syslog server into the Syslog host field. This is your Filebeat Server.
Enter the port number.
Select UDP in the Protocol menu.
Step 2 - Install Filebeat
Step 3 - Configure Filebeat.yml
The configuration file below is pre-configured to send data to your Logit.io Stack.
Copy the configuration file below and overwrite the contents of the Filebeat configuration file typically located at
# ============================== Filebeat inputs =============================== filebeat.inputs: - type: udp max_message_size: 10MiB host: "0.0.0.0:514" enabled: true fields: type: fields_under_root: true encoding: utf-8 ignore_older: 12h # ================================== Outputs =================================== output.logstash: hosts: ["your-logstash-host:your-ssl-port"] loadbalance: true ssl.enabled: true
If you’re running Filebeat 7, add this code block to the end. Otherwise, you can leave it out.
# ... For Filebeat 7 only ... filebeat.registry.path: /var/lib/filebeat
If you’re running Filebeat 6, add this code block to the end.
# ... For Filebeat 6 only ... registry_file: /var/lib/filebeat/registry
It’s a good idea to run the configuration file through a YAML validator to rule out indentation errors, clean up extra characters, and check if your YAML file is valid. Yamllint.com is a great choice.
Step 4 - Start filebeat
Start or restart to apply the configuration changes.
Step 5 - Check Logit.io for your logs
Now you should view your logs:
