Step 1 - Install FilebeatCopy

deb (Debian/Ubuntu/Mint)

curl -L -O https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats//-oss-7.15.1-amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i -oss-7.15.1-amd64.deb

rpm (CentOS/RHEL/Fedora)

curl -L -O https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats//-oss-7.15.1-x86_64.rpm
sudo rpm -vi -oss-7.15.1-x86_64.rpm

macOS

curl -L -O https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats//-oss-7.15.1-darwin-x86_64.tar.gz
tar xzvf -oss-7.15.1-darwin-x86_64.tar.gz

Windows

  • Download and extract the Windows zip file.
  • Rename the -<version>-windows directory to ``.
  • Open a PowerShell prompt as an Administrator.
  • Run the following to install as a Windows service:
.\install-service-.ps1
If script execution is disabled on your system, you need to set the execution policy for the current session to allow the script to run. For example: PowerShell.exe -ExecutionPolicy UnRestricted -File .\install-service-.ps1.

Step 2 - Enable the Redis ModuleCopy

There are several built in filebeat modules you can use. You will need to enable the redis module.

deb/rpm

sudo filebeat modules list
sudo filebeat modules enable redis

macOS

cd <EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE>
./filebeat modules list
./filebeat modules enable redis

Windows

cd <EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE>
.\filebeat.exe modules list
.\filebeat.exe modules enable redis

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

deb/rpm /etc/filebeat/modules.d/
mac/win <EXTRACTED_ARCHIVE>/modules.d/

- module: redis
# Main logs
log:
  enabled: true

  # Set custom paths for the log files. If left empty,
  # Filebeat will choose the paths depending on your OS.
  #var.paths: ["/var/log/redis/redis-server.log*"]

# Slow logs, retrieved via the Redis API (SLOWLOG)
slowlog:
  enabled: true

  # The Redis hosts to connect to.
  #var.hosts: ["localhost:6379"]

  # Optional, the password to use when connecting to Redis.
  #var.password:

Step 3 - Copy configuration FileCopy

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 filebeat.yml.

# ============================== Filebeat modules ==============================

filebeat.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">
    <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> 

Step 4 - Start FilebeatCopy

Ok, time to start ingesting data!

deb/rpm

sudo systemctl enable filebeat
sudo systemctl start filebeat

macOS

./filebeat

Windows

PS C:\Program Files\Filebeat> Start-Service filebeat

Step 5 - how to diagnose no data in StackCopy

If you don't see data appearing in your Stack after following the steps, visit the Help Centre guide for steps to diagnose no data appearing in your Stack or Chat to support now.

Step 6 - Redis dashboardCopy

The Redis module comes with predefined Kibana dashboards. To view your dashboards for any of your Logit.io stacks, launch Kibana and choose Dashboards.
