Filebeat “connection reset by peer”

Below issue occurred while Filebeat trying to publish events to Logstash.

Failed to publish events caused by: write tcp> write: connection reset by peer
2017-05-06T12:55:33-05:00 INFO Error publishing events (retrying): write tcp> write: connection reset by peer

This can cause by many reasons :

  • Logstash is not running  or port is used by some other instance of Logstash.
  • Filebeat and Logstash versions are not compatible.
  • If fireball is enabled between different VM versions then there should be same certificate to connect with Logstash.
