./sysutils/beats, Data Shippers for Elasticsearch

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.4.2, Package name: beats-5.4.2, Maintainer: filip

The Beats are lightweight processes, written in Go, that you install
on your servers to capture all sorts of operational data like logs,
operating system metrics or network packet data, and to send it to
Elasticsearch, either directly or via Logstash, so it can be
visualized with Kibana.

==== Breaking changes

Affecting all Beats

- Change Beat generator. Use
  `$GOPATH/src/github.com/elastic/beats/script/generate.py` to
  generate a beat.

Filebeat
- Always use absolute path for event and registry. This can lead to
  issues when relative paths were used before.

- Linux cgroup metrics are now enabled by default for the system
  process metricset. The configuration option for the feature was
  renamed from `cgroups` to `process.cgroups.enabled`.
- Change field names `couchbase.node.couch.*.actual_disk_size.*` to
  `couchbase.node.couch.*.disk_size.*`

==== Bugfixes

Affecting all Beats
- Add `_id`, `_type`, `_index` and `_score` fields in the generated
  index pattern.

Filebeat
- Fix empty registry file on machine crash.

Metricbeat

  cgroups are missing from the kernel.
- Add labels to the Docker healthcheck metricset output.

Winlogbeat
