There are several built in filebeat modules you can use. To enable the mysql module run.
filebeat modules list filebeat modules enable mysql
cd <EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE> ./filebeat modules list ./filebeat modules enable mysql
.\Filebeat modules enable mysql
The default configured paths for MySQL logs are as follows.
Additional module configuration can be done using the per module config files located in the modules.d folder, most commonly this would be to read logs from a non-default location
- module: mysql # Error logs error: enabled: true # Set custom paths for the log files. If left empty, # Filebeat will choose the paths depending on your OS. #var.paths: # Slow logs slowlog: enabled: true # Set custom paths for the log files. If left empty, # Filebeat will choose the paths depending on your OS. #var.paths:
We'll 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 by running directly inside the terminal.
If the file is invalid, will print an
error loading config file error message with details on how to correct the problem.
sudo -e -c /etc//.yml
cd <EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE> ./ -e -c .yml
cd <EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE> .\.exe -e -c .yml
Ok, time to start ingesting data!
sudo systemctl enable filebeat sudo systemctl start filebeat
PS C:\Program Files\Filebeat> Start-Service filebeat
The MySQL module comes with predefined Kibana dashboards. To view your dashboards for any of your Logit.io stacks, launch Kibana and choose Dashboards.
MySQL is an open source relational database management system created by Michael Widenius in 1995, this relational database runs across the majority of operating systems & is closely associated with its usage for web applications.
MySQL powers some of the world’s highest traffic sites, including Facebook, YouTube & Pinterest.
MySQL is able to work within an operating system to organise data into multiple data tables and show which data types may be related to each other. This helps the user to easily structure their data.
When used in this way, relational databases can be used to test database integrity, manage users and create backups of vital data.
MySQL Servers create numerous logs that you can use for troubleshooting and analysis, the most important ones include: Slow query logs, General query logs & error logs.
These logs default to a text file format, which can quickly become tedious to parse and process quickly to spot functional problems, opportunities to improve performance and identify security issues.
Our built in HA (high availability) MySQL log file analyser can be used to centralise your data & set up alerts to monitor your log data in real-time as well as deliver metrics for Kibana visualisations & reports with easily.
