    Hi,

    I was wondering where the logs for logstash and/or beats is located? I know on a linux system its /var/log/logstash/logstash.log, but where does that take place in Windows? I'm assuming once data is read from logstash it needs to log it somewhere?

    Sorry for the late reply, I am not certain I fully understand the question.

    How it works is:
    Application -> Beats -> Logstash -> ElasticSearch.

    So the logs should be stored in ElasticSearch, the /var/log/logstash should be just logstash application logs.
