Terminalbeat 📟

Welcome to Terminalbeat.

This beat runs a command (specified in the config file terminalbeat.yml) and forwards the corresponding stdout to Logstash or Elasticsearch.

Ensure that this folder is at the following location: ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/live-wire/terminalbeat

Getting Started with Terminalbeat

Requirements

Init Project

To get running with Terminalbeat and also install the dependencies, run the following command:

make setup

It will create a clean git history for each major step. Note that you can always rewrite the history if you wish before pushing your changes.

To push Terminalbeat in the git repository, run the following commands:

git remote set-url origin https://github.com/live-wire/terminalbeat
git push origin master

For further development, check out the beat developer guide.

Build

To build the binary for Terminalbeat run the command below. This will generate a binary in the same directory with the name terminalbeat.

make

Run

To run Terminalbeat with debugging output enabled, run:

./terminalbeat -c terminalbeat.yml -e -d "*"

Test

To test Terminalbeat, run the following command:

make testsuite

alternatively:

make unit-tests
make system-tests
make integration-tests
make coverage-report

The test coverage is reported in the folder ./build/coverage/

Update

Each beat has a template for the mapping in elasticsearch and a documentation for the fields which is automatically generated based on fields.yml by running the following command.

make update

Cleanup

To clean Terminalbeat source code, run the following command:

make fmt

To clean up the build directory and generated artifacts, run:

make clean

Clone

To clone Terminalbeat from the git repository, run the following commands:

mkdir -p ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/live-wire/terminalbeat
git clone https://github.com/live-wire/terminalbeat ${GOPATH}/src/github.com/live-wire/terminalbeat

For further development, check out the beat developer guide.

Packaging

The beat frameworks provides tools to crosscompile and package your beat for different platforms. This requires docker and vendoring as described above. To build packages of your beat, run the following command:

make release

This will fetch and create all images required for the build process. The whole process to finish can take several minutes.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
