juju deploy containers-filebeat
You will need Juju 2.9 to be able to run this command. Learn how to upgrade to Juju 2.9.
Deploy universal operators easily with Juju, the Universal Operator Lifecycle Manager.
A lightweight, open source shipper for log file data. As the next-generation Logstash Forwarder, Filebeat tails logs and quickly sends this information to Logstash for further parsing and enrichment or to Elasticsearch for centralized storage and analysis.
Filebeat can be added to any principal charm thanks to the wonders of being a subordinate charm. The following usage example will deploy an ubuntu log source along with the elk stack so we can visualize our log data.
juju deploy ~elasticsearch-charmers/bundle/elk-stack juju deploy xenial/filebeat juju deploy xenial/ubuntu juju add-relation filebeat:beats-host ubuntu juju add-relation filebeat logstash
Deploying the minimal Beats formation
If you do not need log buffering and alternate transforms on data that is being shipped to ElasticSearch, you can simply deploy the 'beats-core' bundle which stands up Elasticsearch, Kibana, and the known working Beats subordinate applications.
juju deploy ~containers/bundle/beats-core juju deploy xenial/ubuntu juju add-relation filebeat:beats-host ubuntu juju add-relation topbeat:beats-host ubuntu
Changing what is shipped
By default, the Filebeat charm is setup to ship everything in:
If you'd rather target specific log files:
juju config filebeat logpath /var/log/mylog.log
Testing the deployment
The applications provide extended status reporting to indicate when they are ready:
This is particularly useful when combined with watch to track the on-going progress of the deployment:
watch juju status
The message for each unit will provide information about that unit's state. Once they all indicate that they are ready, you can navigate to the kibana url and view the streamed log data from the Ubuntu host.
juju status kibana --format=yaml | grep public-address
Navigate to http://<kibana-ip>/ in a browser and begin creating your dashboard visualizations.
Scale Out Usage
This bundle was designed to scale out. To increase the amount of log storage and indexers, you can add-units to elasticsearch.
juju add-unit elasticsearch
You can also increase in multiples, for example: To increase the number of Logstash parser/buffer/shipping units:
juju add-unit -n 2 logstash
To monitor additional hosts, simply relate the Filebeat subordinate:
juju add-relation filebeat:beats-host my-charm
