Elasticsearch Winlogbeats cause "caught exception while handling client http traffic"

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone has any help for what I'm seeing. I have about 150 winlogbeats pointing to a 3 node ES cluster. Over the course of about an hour, I get about 20,000 logs of:

caught exception while handling client http traffic, closing connection Netty4HttpChannel{localAddress=/<es_server_ip>, remoteAddress=/<remote_ip>:26577} o.e.h.AbstractHttpServerTransport

Is there something that can be done to reduce these logs? I feel like 20,000 logs an hour from 150 beats is a bit excessive.

From my Googling there were a few different things, but nothing really provided a solution from what I could find.

Where are you seeing those logs?

I was actually able to figure this out by looking further at the stacktrace and the issue came down to an incorrectly configured ca cert on the beats end. I was able to correct the ca and am no longer getting the error.
