Hi Digital Ocean Community,

thanks for https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-elastic-stack-on-ubuntu-20-04

i can setup ELK stack without any issue and now my ELK can showing syslog from own server. what should i do to get another log data from another server (Linux and Windows)? i looked at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-installation-configuration.html

but I’m confused to set it up in my ELK based on this tutorial : https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-elasticsearch-logstash-and-kibana-elastic-stack-on-ubuntu-20-04

appreciate your help.

Hi @stevenaudy,

You’ll need to create an elasticsearch cluster to pass data between the servers. It’s a little different than just creating a server with elasticsearch. There are different types of servers that you’ll need to configure as well. What I found useful the first time I was dealing with such a thing was this tutorial - Elastic Search Cluster
