Beats Internal monitoring

Hello everyone,

Has anyone experienced an issue with internal monitoring for Beats? When i ship internal metrics for each Beat to a monitoring cluster, they get grouped under the same Beat on Stack Monitoring tab. I am also using a unique name for each Metricbeat.

Here is a piece of Metricbeat config for internal monitoring.

# ============================= X-Pack Monitoring ==============================
  enabled: true
  cluster_uuid: #my cluster uuid here#

# Metricbeat can export internal metrics to a central Elasticsearch monitoring
# cluster.  This requires xpack monitoring to be enabled in Elasticsearch.  The
# reporting is disabled by default.

# Set to true to enable the monitoring reporter.
#monitoring.enabled: false

# Sets the UUID of the Elasticsearch cluster under which monitoring data for this
# Metricbeat instance will appear in the Stack Monitoring UI. If output.elasticsearch
# is enabled, the UUID is derived from the Elasticsearch cluster referenced by output.elasticsearch.

# Uncomment to send the metrics to Elasticsearch. Most settings from the
# Elasticsearch output are accepted here as well.
# Note that the settings should point to your Elasticsearch *monitoring* cluster.
# Any setting that is not set is automatically inherited from the Elasticsearch
# output configuration, so if you have the Elasticsearch output configured such
# that it is pointing to your Elasticsearch monitoring cluster, you can simply
# uncomment the following line.

Let me know if i need to provide additional info. Any help is appreciated!

Have you configured name and tags for your beats as explained here ?
By default it should use the hostname but I don't know how works Monitoring under the hood...
