Before you can analyze your logs, you need to get them into Elasticsearch. This instructor-led course will teach you how to set up and ship data with Filebeat, a light-weight data shipper that can tail multiple files at once and ship the data to your Elasticsearch cluster.
Note: This course is a module of the Logging specialization.


In addition to shipping file data like logs, Filebeat can also tag data, parse multi-line log entries, and use conditionals to make decisions about what to do with each log line. This class covers these topics and more, including building resiliency and monitoring Filebeat. After completing this course, you will be able to easily tail and ship your logs to Elasticsearch with Filebeat.

Topics Covered

  • Introduction to Filebeat
  • Filebeat Architecture
  • Filebeat Modules and Outputs
  • Resilience and Recovery
  • Monitoring Filebeat
  • Multi-Line Processing
