File beat output has zero hits


After following the link -How To Install Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana I can see zero hits in the output and I am not able to figure out why, also while configuring Kibana, the output of the command - http://your_domain/status landed me on Kibana page but no apps listed on the left-hand side of the page - can someone please explain what’s wrong?

Any help is appreciated.

Regards Aashay

Hi there,

Did you run the following command to disable the Logstash output and enable Elasticsearch output:

sudo filebeat setup -E output.logstash.enabled=false -E output.elasticsearch.hosts=['localhost:9200'] -E

In case that you’ve done this already, what was the output that you got after running it?

Also what is the status of the service:

sudo systemctl status filebeat
