You need to manually install Talend Log Server which includes Kibana and Filebeat to collect logs.

Procedure

  1. Copy and extract the Talend-LogServer-VA.B.C.zip archive file into the directory of your choice.
    Note: The directory name must not contain spaces or non-ASCII characters.
  2. To start Talend Log Server launch the start_logserver.sh executable file.
    You cannot run Elasticsearch as the root user. Elasticseach is part of the Talend Log Server, so you cannot run the executable file as root user.
  3. Configure the LOG_PATH and APP_NAME values for Filebeat in the filebeat.yml, located in the Filebeat directory.
    • Set LOG_PATH and APP_NAME to the following values:
        paths:
          - ${LOG_PATH:/home/Talend/6.5.1/tac/apache-tomcat/logs/*}
        fields:
          app_id: ${APP_NAME:TAC}
    • Or, set the LOG_PATH and APP_NAME environment variables:
      export  LOG_PATH="/home/Talend/6.5.1/tac/apache-tomcat/logs/*"
      export  APP_NAME="TAC"
  4. Start Filebeat:
    filebeat -e -c filebeat.yml

Results

You can now access Talend Log Server with the following URL: http://localhost:5601/app/kibana#/dashboard/Talend-Dashboard.

When you start the Talend Log Server, if you do not see logstash-*, talendesb-*, and talendaudit-* indices, complete the following steps:

  1. Delete the .kibana index.
    curl -XDELETE 'http://localhost:9200/.kibana'

    For Windows users, use the curl found in utils\curl-7.50.3-windows-x86.exe.

  2. Stop the Talend Log Server.
  3. Start the Talend Log Server.
