Filebeat default value for logstash load balance discrepancy


#1

I noticed that on GitHub in the reference yml file for filebeat, under the logstash module, load balancing shows as true. I assumed this was the default but found out later when restarting one of my logstash instance's that wasn't the case.

Afterwards I found the master documentation states the default value is false.
To avoid confusion can the value for load balancing be changed to false in the yml reference file on github?

727 # Optional load balance the events between the Logstash hosts
728 #loadbalance: true

It's actually false because the enabled: true is commented out.

But you raise a valid point, perhaps we can comment in the config file what the default is. Do you mind raising a request on github?

Thank You for the input Mark! I've submitted a pull request on GitHub. If you get a chance to look at it, let me know if I'm following standard guidelines.
