Disabling GeoIP processor


I have currently set "ingest.geoip.downloader.enabled" : "false" in my elasticsearch.yml file as I am using offline databases. I'm using ES v8.8.0, and filebeat to ingest data into ES.

I want to do some testing, which requires me to temporarily disable the IP geolocation feature (to see if turning this off would improve my indexing rate). Based on what I have found online, it seems like most people just set "ingest.geoip.downloader.enabled" : "false" without providing the Maxmind database files, which wouldn't work in my case.

Is there some other way to disable the IP geolocation feature, preferably via some filebeat configuration.

Thank you.
