Collect log from file via Filebeat to Logstash VS collect from logstash directly

What are the PROS and CONS of using Filebeat to collect logs from an application writing files against using the File input plugin of Logstash to directly gather them.

What is more efficient ?

hi, nobody can give an insight ?

Generally, the *beats are considered to be lightweight processes: Not sure whether to use Logstash or Beats | Filebeat Reference [8.4] | Elastic

if you would like to do lot of processing on incoming data then you will use logstash.
if you already have prebuilt parser for beats then use directly and for small changes you can setup ingest pipeline
