ELK and PF 2.3

  • I am pretty new to pfsense and am having a good experience learning about this FW. I came fro Sophos and really liked it but had to leave due to the 50 IP restriction. Now I am looking for a logging and archiving solution for PF and have been trying for weeks to get the ELK stack working with 2.3.2-RELEASE-p1. I have successfully built the ELK server and can see UDP messages coming in via tcpdump, however I do not see any messages in logstash. Also I cannot create an index on the kibana dashboard. It is telling me "Unable to fetch mapping. Do you have indices matching the pattern?"

    From what I can tell, this seems to indicate either the filter or the pattern that I am using (pfsense2-2.grok) might be the issue as the tutorial I followed is for 2.1 and 2.2.

    If anyone here knows how to get ELK working with 2.3, I would really appreciate the help.
