Follow this step by step guide to get 'logs' from your system to Logit.io:
Step 1 - Configuring ESET
The use of ESET Admin Console, which is a locally installed management console, is recommended for organizations that need to send logs to a Syslog server.
Step 1 - Install the ESET certificate
sends data in an encrypted format.
You need to install the certificate on your Filebeat server.
sudo mkdir /etc//certificates sudo openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes \ -keyout /etc/filebeat/certificates/.key -x509 \ -days 365 \ -out /etc/filebeat/certificates/.crt
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: tcp max_message_size: 10MiB host: "0.0.0.0:6515" 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 - Configure ESET to output to syslog
To configure ESET to send logs to your Syslog server, follow these steps:
- Open the ESET Admin Console on the Security Management Center
- In the left side menu choose the ellipsis ... next to Server Settings
- Expand the Advanced Settings
- Find the Server Settings section
- Choose to enable the Syslog server in the SYSLOG SERVER section
Enter the details for your server
- Host: Enter the host ip address
- Port: Enter the port 6515 (unless you have changed the default)
- Format: Select BSD
- Transport: Select TLS
Scroll down to the LOGGING section
- Ensure Export logs to Syslog is enabled
- Choose JSON as the Exported logs format
Step 7 - Check Logit.io for your logs
Now you should view your data:

Step 9 - ESET Logging Overview
ESET is an endpoint security solution that offers complete protection against various cyber threats, including malware, ransomware, and other forms of attacks. To effectively monitor and analyze endpoint activity, it's essential to have a dependable and efficient log management solution. ESET generates logs that contain information on endpoint activity, threats, and user behavior.
To manage these logs efficiently, organizations can utilize Filebeat, a log shipping tool that is open-source, to send logs from ESET to multiple destinations such as Elasticsearch, Logstash, and OpenSearch, as it's both reliable and easy to use. Filebeat is widely employed for sending logs from ESET to various destinations, providing organizations with a centralized platform for collecting, processing, and visualizing security-related data.
To send ESET logs to Filebeat, organizations can set up ESET to forward logs to a syslog server and then use Filebeat to collect and forward log data to Elasticsearch or other destinations. This process includes configuring a syslog server to receive the logs, setting up ESET to send logs to the syslog server, and configuring Filebeat to collect and forward the logs from the syslog server to Elasticsearch or other destinations.
In conclusion, using Filebeat to send ESET logs to various destinations, such as Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana or OpenSearch, provides an effective and reliable log management solution. By configuring ESET to forward logs to a syslog server and using Filebeat to collect and forward the logs to Elasticsearch or other destinations, organizations can gain insights into endpoint activity, threats, and user behavior and take appropriate measures to safeguard their networks against cyber threats.
