As a prerequisite, your hostname will need to be configured as logstash servers by Alooma support.
- Log in to your Alooma account and add a "Server Logs" input.
- Give your input a label (name), and copy the generated token.
- Download and install Filebeat.
- Configure Filebeat according to the example configuration below, making sure to use the token from step 2:
You can further customize your Filebeat client by following the example configuration file in Filebeat's GitHub repository.
# Paths that should be crawled and fetched. Glob based paths.
# To fetch all ".log" files from a specific level of subdirectories
# /var/log/*/*.log can be used.
# For each file found under this path, a harvester is started.
# Make sure no file is defined twice as this can lead to unexpected behavior.
# The token you receive when creating a new Filebeat input in the Alooma UI
ssl: certificate_authorities: 
- Run Filebeat:
filebeat -c filebeat.yml
That's it, you're ready to send events to Alooma. Enjoy!
