Autodiscover and modules

What is the main difference between using only docker module and autodiscover ?
What's the main idea of autodiscover? With both I can detect stopped containers, images etc .


Hello @Zane_Storha,

The main difference between docker and autodiscover is autodiscover allow you to change
on the fly the running configuration of the beats when a new container is started or stopped.

Autodiscover uses hints that you can define to generate the appropriate configuration.

The docker input allows you to read the logs from a container, autodiscover uses the docker input.
