I am trying to understand how to set up logstash .conf files to see what is required.
I am considering a separate .conf files for each index/type of metric being captured.
On the web it suggests that even if they are split then logstash merged them in flight being executing, therefore they are implicitly just one file?
I would expect each input to have a different output, but it would seem that to achieve this each input has to have a type set and the output would have to check that input type is this really correct?
Is there an example file anywhere that shows how to set up an environment with many inputs and many outputs?
