GL 2.3 would not show messages from the Beats plugin


(Javier Llerenas) #1

I installed the plugin, restarted GL, and then installed metricsbeat on the same server for testing purposes. I created a dedicated “beats input” and directed metricsbeat to send the logs to it.

The issue is that, although I can see in the web-server that the input is receiving messages, when I click on “Show Messages”, it says no messages were found.

What’s in the logs of your Graylog and Elasticsearch nodes?

I found out that GL is having problems Indexing the logs from Metricbeats. Here is one of the lines from Indexer Failures on the web-server:

{"type":"mapper_parsing_exception","reason":"failed to parse","caused_by":{"type":"illegal_argument_exception","reason":"Can't parse [index] value [not_analyzed] for field [metricbeat_metricset_module], expected [true] or [false]"}}

Additionally, this is what is in the Graylog Log (/var/log/graylog-server/graylog.log) :

Also, I do have the graylog-plugin-beats-2.3.0.jar plugin inside /usr/share/graylog-server/plugin/
