Best Practice for handling gz, bz2 compressed file

  1. Does Filebeat have capability to decode compressed file - gz, bz2 input ?
  2. If not, what is the best practice suggested ? (filebeat in conjunction with other utilities, plugins etc)

Currently it doesn't. There is an ongoing discussion if we should support it. See It would be very interesting to hear more about your use case here.

What you could do, is use a tool to unzip the content and use filebeat with stdin prospector to fetch the data.
