Configuring sidecar error

I am trying to install and configure sidecar and also use filebeat to read plain txt logs and getting this error.

ERROR fileset/modules.go:118 Not loading modules. Module directory not found: C:\Program Files\graylog\collector-sidecar\module
ERROR service/service_windows.go:76 Error: The service process could not connect to the service controller.
ERROR pipeline/output.go:100 Failed to connect to backoff(elasticsearch( Get dial tcp connectex: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

I am facing issues in getting the sidecar started properly.

the above error is created by filebeat, not sidecar.

please explain what you have done and what is causing what error and how you have configured the components.

Hello Jan,

I have downloaded and started the sidecar service on my windows machine. These are the folders that have been created. Attached is the sidecar config yml file.

I have placed the config file for filebeat in ‘generated’ directory. But there are no modules found and getting below error.

“Not loading modules. Module directory not found: C:\Program Files\graylog\collector-sidecar\module”

Attaching the log files for more errors.

I am trying to create a POC wherein I am planning to ingest the logs at “C:\Windows” on my local machine into graylog.

Kindly let me know if you need any more details.



(Attachment collector_sidecar.yml is missing)

(Attachment filebeat.yml is missing)

(Attachment filebeat is missing)

if you create the filebeat configuration your own - why do you use collector sidecar? That is to configure filebeat via Graylog UI.

I do not understand what you want/try to configure.
