Step 1 - Download Kubernetes deploy manifest
Download the filebeat kubernetes deploy manifest using the link below:
Step 2 - Insert your stack details
Open the manifest and around line 76 you should see the environment variables controlling the logging destination. You need to update them to point to your stack.
env: - name: LOGSTASH_HOST value: "your-logstash-host" - name: BEATS_PORT value: "your-port"
Step 3 - Deploy your pod
Now your deployment manifest is updated, you can deploy it using.
kubectl apply -f filebeat-kubernetes.yaml
Step 4 - Confirm the deployment has completed
kubectl --namespace=kube-system get ds/filebeat kubectl --namespace=kube-system get pods
You should see a pod for each kubernetes node with a name similar to filebeat-abcde listed. The pods should work though from Pending to Running within a couple of minutes as the containers are downloaded and started.
