I've setup and installed Kibana and elastic search on my redhat vm. I then followed the fairly simple instructions to install filebeat with the apache module to gather the information on the apache logs and display in kibana. I've also been able to view system information with metricbeat this way.

However I'm pretty stuck on how to do for the catalina logs. There's no tomcat module and it seems I will have to use filebeat to send to logstash? Any good links tutorials on how to set this up would be greatly appreciated. I've googled and they all seem to vary in their approach. Do I need to use logstash or can I just send the logs with filebeat?
