Compiling Filebeat for 32 bit Raspberry Pis
Filebeat is part of the Elastic Stack, and is used to parse and ship logs to Logstash, Elasticsearch, and Kibana. If you are like me you may have a multitude of Raspberry Pis running, and doing things where monitoring logs in something like Elastic would be cool. This guide aims to provide a walk-through on compiling filebeat on 32bit arm architectures. Elastic provides Filebeat packages for different platforms and architectures, but sadly not the armhf/armv7l architecture that Raspberry Pis use.
