It is possible to get some stats on filebeat about how many events/s, bandwith mb/s, size of logs is send by a server ever day etc ?

There are some internal counters that can be exposed through running with the -httpprof option: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/filebeat-command-line.html But as this exposes also lots of debug information it is not recommended to run it in production.

WIth filebeat 5.0 you have every 30s in the log a summary of the events changed metrics. Also keep an eye on this issue here: https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/463
