I have some questions about what the MetricBeat can do in some situations. I wonder if anyone can help me.
Can I configure more than one output (e.g. elastic search and logstash. This is purely hypothetical. Just examples to show what I mean.) in metricbeat.yml?
If yes, will that means the same sets of data will be sent to two destinations? Basically two copies?
I see that logstash output allows load balance which has to be explicitly enabled to achieve. If I don't enable it, will that means each logstash host will receive a copy of the data? For others (e.g. ElasticSearch), I guess I can also configure multiple hosts. But it does not have load balance. Will that means if I do configure multiple, each host will receive a copy?
Is there any way to set up so that different metric set will go to different output?
Right now it seems that (in the example metricbeat.full.yml file) at the end of system module we can set the period. This applies to all in the system module. Will it be possible to set up different periods for different metric set(s)?
I appreciate any lights on these.
