Private Key – A unique ID that represents your company. The private key can be found under ‘settings’->’ send your logs’. It is located in the upper left corner.

Company Id – A unique number which represents your company. You can get your company id from the settings tab in the Coralogix dashbaord.

Application Name – The name of your main application, for example, a company named “SuperData” would probably insert the “SuperData” string parameter or if they want to debug their test environment they might insert the “SuperData– Test”.

SubSystem Name – Your application probably has multiple subsystems, for example: Backend servers, Middleware, Frontend servers etc. in order to help you examine the data you need, inserting the subsystem parameter is vital.


On the host machine

Open your Metricbeat configuration file and configure it to use Logstash. For more information about configuring Metricbeat to use Logstash please refer to: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/logstash-output.html

Point your Metricbeat to output to Coralogix logstash server:


In addition you should add Coralogix configuration from the General section.

Here is a basic example of metricbeat.yml file for collecting metrics from  a Redis server:

- module: redis
  enabled: true
  hosts: ["redis:6379"]
  metricsets: ["info", "keyspace"]
  period: 10s

fields_under_root: true
  COMPANY_ID: Your company ID

  enabled: true
#If your account URL end with .com use logstashserver.coralogix.com #If your account URL end with .in use logstashserver.app.coralogix.in
hosts: ["your-logstash-enadpoint:5015"] ssl.certificate_authorities: ["<path to folder with certificates>/ca.crt"]

Note: If you want to send all additional metadata, the fields_under_root option should be equals to false.

With Docker

Build Docker image with your metricbeat.yml:

FROM docker.elastic.co/beats/metricbeat:6.6.2

LABEL description="Metricbeat metrics data collector"

# Adding configuration file and SSL certificates for Metricbeat
COPY metricbeat.yml /usr/share/metricbeat/metricbeat.yml
COPY ca.crt /etc/ssl/certs/Coralogix.crt

# Changing permission of configuration file
USER root
RUN chown root:metricbeat /usr/share/metricbeat/metricbeat.yml

# Return to deploy user
USER metricbeat


You can also deploy with Docker-compose:

version: '3.6'
    image: redis:latest
    container_name: redis

    image: docker.elastic.co/beats/metricbeat:6.6.2
    container_name: metricbeat
      - ./metricbeat.yml:/usr/share/metricbeat/metricbeat.yml:ro
      - ./ca.crt:/etc/ssl/certs/Coralogix.crt:ro

Make sure you change owner of metricbeat.yml file to root (uid=1000). /n /n
