Breaking changesedit

Affecting all Beats

  • Update to ECS 1.0.1. 12284 12317
  • Default of output.kafka.metadata.full is set to false by now. This reduced the amount of metadata to be queried from a kafka cluster. 12738

Filebeat

  • convert_timezone option is removed and locale is always added to the event so timezone is used when parsing the timestamp, this behaviour can be overriden with processors. 12410

Bugfixesedit

Affecting all Beats

  • Fix typo in TLS renegotiation configuration and setting the option correctly 10871, 12354
  • Add configurable bulk_flush_frequency in kafka output. 12254
  • Fixed setting bulk max size in kafka output. 12254
  • Add additional nil pointer checks to Docker client code to deal with vSphere Integrated Containers 12628
  • Fix seccomp policy preventing some features to function properly on 32bit Linux systems. 12990 13008

Auditbeat

  • Package dataset: Close librpm handle. 12215
  • Package dataset: Improve dpkg parsing. 12325
  • Host dataset: Fix reboot detection logic. 12591
  • Add syscalls used by librpm for the system/package dataset to the default Auditbeat seccomp policy. 12578 12617
  • Host dataset: Export Host fields to gob encoder. 12940

Filebeat

  • Parse timezone in PostgreSQL logs as part of the timestamp 12338
  • When TLS is configured for the TCP input and a certificate_authorities is configured we now default to required for the client_authentication. 12584
  • Syslog input will now omit the process object from events if it is empty. 12700
  • Apply max_message_size to incoming message buffer. 11966

Heartbeat

Journalbeat

  • Iterate over journal correctly, so no duplicate entries are sent. 12716
  • Preserve host name when reading from remote journal. 12714

Metricbeat

  • Refactored Windows perfmon metricset: replaced method to retrieve counter paths with PdhExpandWildCardPathW, separated code by responsibility, removed unused functions 12212
  • Validate that kibana/status metricset cannot be used when xpack is enabled. 12264
  • In the kibana/stats metricset, only log error (don’t also index it) if xpack is enabled. 12265
  • Fix an issue listing all processes when run under Windows as a non-privileged user. 12301 12475
  • When TLS is configured for the http metricset and a certificate_authorities is configured we now default to required for the client_authentication. 12584
  • Reuse connections in PostgreSQL metricsets. 12504 12603
  • PdhExpandWildCardPathW will not expand counter paths in 32 bit windows systems, workaround will use a different function.1259012622
  • Print errors that were being omitted in vSphere metricsets 12816
  • In the elasticsearch/node_stats metricset, if xpack is enabled, make parsing of ES node load average optional as ES on Windows doesn’t report load average. 12866
  • Fix incoherent behaviour in redis key metricset when keyspace is specified both in host URL and key pattern 12913
  • Fix connections leak in redis module 12914 12950
