Permission denied message when installing vmtools

When installing vmtools on a linux machine inside the /tmp directory, got this error:
./vmware-install.pl: /usr/bin/perl: bad interpreter: Permission denied

Then looked at tmp for permissions:
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root root     31 Mar  6 11:13 vmware-install.pl

It seems ok but if /etc/fstab has noexec option like:
LABEL=/tmp    /tmp    ext3    nosuid,noexec,nodev    1    2

Changed with this one and remount again:
LABEL=/tmp    /tmp    ext3    defaults    1    2

Sending Jboss Server Logs to Logstash Using Filebeat with Multiline Support

In addition to sending system logs to logstash, it is possible to add a prospector section to the filebeat.yml for jboss server logs. Sometimes jboss server.log has single events made up from several lines of messages. In such cases Filebeat should be configured for a multiline prospector.
Filebeat takes lines do not start with a date pattern (look at pattern in the multiline section "^[[:digit:]]{4}-[[:digit:]]{2}-[[:digit:]]{2}" and negate section is set to true) and combines them with the previous line that starts with a date pattern.
