I am using Filebeat to read in logs. I could not find any information about how Filebeat handles log file collisions. I want to know if Filebeat can detect when a log file it's configured to read, is being updated or added onto by some other tool or service. If so, what does Filebeat do? Are there settings we can set to change its default behavior in this situation? I understand Filebeat uses the file's size to determine when to read a file again.
Any specific info on this is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
