This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.
To get started with your own Journalbeat setup, install and configure these related products:
- Elasticsearch for storing and indexing the data.
- Kibana for the UI.
- Logstash (optional) for parsing and enhancing the data.
See Getting started with the Elastic Stack for more information about installing these products.
You can skip having to install Elasticsearch and Kibana by using our hosted Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud. The Elasticsearch Service is available on both AWS and GCP. Try out the Elasticsearch Service for free.
After installing the Elastic Stack, read the following topics to learn how to install, configure, and run Journalbeat:
