Configure the Console outputedit

The Console output writes events in JSON format to stdout.

output.console:
  pretty: true

Configuration optionsedit

You can specify the following options in the console section of the auditbeat.yml config file:

prettyedit

If pretty is set to true, events written to stdout will be nicely formatted. The default is false.

codecedit

Output codec configuration. If the codec section is missing, events will be json encoded using the pretty option.

See Output codec for more information.

enablededit

The enabled config is a boolean setting to enable or disable the output. If set to false, the output is disabled.

The default value is true.

bulk_max_sizeedit

The maximum number of events to buffer internally during publishing. The default is 2048.

Specifying a larger batch size may add some latency and buffering during publishing. However, for Console output, this setting does not affect how events are published.

Setting bulk_max_size to 0 disables buffering in libbeat.
