Hi. We're using filebeat version 1.2.3 (amd64) on Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS server.
We are using logrotate to rotate files (20 unique file names) hourly. So filebeat should monitor files with $filenames.log and $filenames.log.1
But when we've more data streaming to those files then it seems we've issue with disk space of getting full easily.
And when i run this command lsof +L1 /var I see alot of processs by filebeat access deleted files as that's what the command said (deleted).
Then those still count into the disk space stats. But everytime I restart filebeat those will be gone and free up disk space.
We tried these setting in yml files but doesn't seem help. Any suggestion as we don't want to keep restart filebeat service. Thanks.
