Recently added the add_locale processor to a Filebeat instance and its adding the current timezone offset to logs correctly. However, if I change the timezone without restarting Filebeat, the timezone offset reported is the old one. This appears to happen with Winlogbeat as well. For timezone changes to take effect in beats, does a beat need to be restarted or is something bugged in the way the timezone is determined?
I could see this being a problem with long running beats when a timezone change to standard time to daylight savings.
