I have configured the apache tag in graylog web . created beats input and output .

ideally im supposed to view the logs in /var/log/*.log , which im not able to see in web .

Can you help me out on this


is your Graylog REST API it is very unlikely that you can reach the BEAT Input on that host via


But that is how this is configured

I changed the beats localhost to IP address in the configuration and it worked . Thank you :slightly_smiling_face:

Could you please let me know how is it possible to configure multiple logs beat input/output .

For now i have configured for only 1 access log
