Configure Heartbeat on Dockeredit
The Docker image provides several methods for configuring Heartbeat. The conventional approach is to provide a configuration file via a bind-mounted volume, but it’s also possible to create a custom image with your configuration included.
One way to configure Heartbeat on Docker is to provide
heartbeat.yml via bind-mounting.
docker run, the bind-mount can be specified like this:
docker run \ -v ~/heartbeat.yml:/usr/share/heartbeat/heartbeat.yml \ docker.elastic.co/beats/heartbeat:6.2.1
Custom image configurationedit
It’s possible to embed your Heartbeat configuration in a custom image. Here is an example Dockerfile to achieve this:
FROM docker.elastic.co/beats/heartbeat:6.2.1 COPY heartbeat.yml /usr/share/heartbeat/heartbeat.yml USER root RUN chown heartbeat /usr/share/heartbeat/heartbeat.yml USER heartbeat
