Filebeat is not creating a log file after a fresh install

  • 1.  Filebeat is not creating a log file after a fresh install

    Posted 6 days ago
    I need some help with Filebeat (7.5.2-1) on AIX... I recently migrated to AIX 7.2 (7200-05-02-2114), and when I start filebeat it won't write a log file... If I install this on my other LPARS and take all the defaults it runs fine and logs to /opt/freeware/var/log/filebeat/filebeat... 


    # rpm -qa | grep filebeat

    filebeat-7.5.2-1.ppc

    # /opt/freeware/bin/filebeat &

    # ps -ef | grep filebeat

    Run "/opt/freeware/bin/filebeat -e " which will log to stderr and look for any issues in the messages.

    Please use AIX open source discussion forum instead of AIX forum for open source packages.

    Thanks - Will post in AIX open source in future...  Appears to have an issue running with Dynatrace - if I stop Dynatrace it works... All set...
