Filebeat not reading local files

I set up collector sidecar and filebeat successfully, when I run ./graylog-collector-sidecar at /usr/bin I got filebeat starting successfully and no error. But when I try to import a local log file, for some reason I couldn’t see anything through the web-interface, which means nothing came up through the Search section. So I am wondering if there’s a problem with the setting of the permission of the folder ? or there’s something wrong with configuration file for filebeat ?

I also tried to analyze Mongodb log using graylog, I used the same exact configuration except the Path to Logfile in the input config and it worked.

Thanks !

I figured out myself, you can use:

nc ip-address 5555 </path-to-log.log to upload files
