Hi, I am trying to scan multiple folder paths like dev, qa, prod (maybe 45 paths something like /var/tmp/xyz-dev-abc/.logs , or /var/tmp/xyz-qa-abc/.logs)
I have 15 such different envs(dev/qa/qa1 etc) and 3 such path per env
so i can have 15 logstash instances catering to 3 paths each
or I can have 1 logstash instance catering to 45 paths (with a type field set for each 15)
Which is better in terms of perf? It will be much easier for me to have 1 logstash instance but will it make logstash slow since it has to scan 45 folders instead of 3 ) Note if 15 logstash run they will need to run in same host as the paths are not NFS but /var/tmp.
