I want to send logging from vmware hosts to an rsyslog server that forwards the whole thing to Elasticsearch and Kibana on the same server. I used this guide:
I can see log entries arriving at /var/log/messages on the rsyslog server from the vmware hosts, but when accessing http://servername:8000
Kibana shows no log entries in any of the predefined Dashboards.
How do I verify and/or troubleshoot if anything is ending up at the Elasticsearch and Kibana server? Is there any more configuration I need doing before I see anything in Kibana?
Adding the rsyslog.conf file here for information. There is nothing sensitive in it.
