Description Vjaceslavs Klimovs 2019-09-04 02:02:04 UTC
Filebeat modules simplify the collection, parsing, and visualization of common log formats. More info at 

Some modules are part of x-pack, but some are not. Ebuild currently does not install any modules, but they are there in the filebeat-7.2.0.tar.gz archive. 

beats-7.2.0/filebeat/modules.d directory should go into /etc/filebeat/
beats-7.2.0/module should go into /var/lib/filebeat

This also gets rid of startup error of filebeat:
