Correct way of configuring metricbeat

I am running 11 nodes of elasticsearch cluster which include the following

  1. Three master nodes
  2. Six data nodes
  3. 2 coordinate nodes

Earlier i installed and setup metricbeat in all nodes but it leads to consumption of high storage nearly around 150 gb per day

now i installed and setup metricbeat in master nodes only and set scope: cluster but it is not working there is no .monitoring-es-mb-*' index
so i want to know what is the correct way of configuring metricbeat ?

Have you read this guide: Monitor a cluster | Elasticsearch Guide [master] | Elastic ?

Yeah I solved by installing metricbeat only in master nodes and add scope:cluster in elasticsearch-xpack.yam file
