Follow this step by step guide to get 'logs' from your system to Logit.io:

Step 1 - Install Metricbeat

To get started first follow the steps below:

Older versions can be found here metricbeat 7, metricbeat 6, metricbeat 5

Step 2 - Copy configuration file

The configuration file below is pre-configured to send data to your Logit.io Stack via Logstash.

Copy the configuration file below and overwrite the contents of metricbeat.yml.

###################### Logit.io Metricbeat Configuration #######################
# =========================== Modules configuration ============================

metricbeat.config.modules:
  # Glob pattern for configuration loading
  path: ${path.config}/modules.d/*.yml

  # Set to true to enable config reloading
  reload.enabled: false

  # Period on which files under path should be checked for changes
  #reload.period: 10s
# ======================= Elasticsearch template setting =======================
setup.template.settings:
  index.number_of_shards: 1
  index.codec: best_compression
  #_source.enabled: false

# ================================== Outputs ===================================
# ------------------------------ Logstash Output -------------------------------
<div class="sw-warning">
    <div>
        <img src="/images/source-wizard/warning-triangle.svg">
    </div>
    <div>
       <b>No input available! </b> Your stack is missing the required input for this data source <a href="#" onclick="Intercom('showNewMessage')" class="btn btn-info btn-sm">Talk to support to add the input</a>
    </div>
</div> 

Step 3 - Enable module

There are several built in metricbeat modules you can use. To enable the HAProxy module, run the following:

deb/rpm

metricbeat modules list
metricbeat modules enable haproxy

macOS

./metricbeat modules list
./metricbeat modules enable haproxy

Windows

PS > .\metricbeat.exe modules enable haproxy

Step 4 - Configure module

Each module has its own configuration file where different metricsets can be enabled / disabled. Locate the configuration file for the HAProxy module.

deb/rpm /etc/metricbeat/modules.d/haproxy.yml

mac/win ~/<EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE>/modules.d/haproxy.yml

By default the info and stat metricsets are disabled. To enable or disable a metric simply comment or uncomment the line out.

- module: haproxy
  metricsets:
    - info
    - stat
  period: 10s
  hosts: ["tcp://127.0.0.1:14567"]

Step 5 - Start Metricbeat

Start or restart metricbeat to apply the configuration changes.

Step 6 - Check Logit.io for your logs

Now you should view your data:
