Humio and MongooseIM

Getting Humio's ingest token

Visit this url to create a new sandbox's ingest token.

The URL is:


Configure Filebeat

Configure Filebeat, using this config file priv/filebeat.mongooseim.humio.yml.

We recommend to use the Filebeat docker container. You have to use an open-source version of Filebeat, which has the oss suffix.

This example mounts a log directory $(pwd)/_build/mim1/rel/mongooseim/log as a volume for Filebeat. It also mounts a configuration file $(pwd)/priv/filebeat.mongooseim.humio.yml. Most likely these paths would be different on your machine.

Pass your Humio ingest token as a password argument. Or uncomment and change it inside the filebeat.mongooseim.humio.yml file.

docker run -d \
    --name mongooseim-filebeat \
    -v "$(pwd)/_build/mim1/rel/mongooseim/log:/usr/lib/mongooseim/log" \
    -v "$(pwd)/priv/filebeat.mongooseim.humio.yml:/usr/share/filebeat/filebeat.yml:ro" \ \
    filebeat -e -E output.elasticsearch.password="abc12345-xxxx-yyyy-zzzz-123456789abc"

Argument -e enables debugging information for Filebeat that can be visible using the docker logs mongooseim-filebeat command.
