Hi, I'm using filebeat for tons of servers in my Production environment and have some questions.
Does Filebeat compress logs while they're being streamed? We're trying to limit bandwidth usage between our servers and are trying to figure out the best way to compress logs. Is it possible to stream gzipped logs? If not, does anyone else have anything that allows for compressing on the fly?
When using load balancing filebeat to logstash, I can't seem to see anything that indicates that order of log lines is preserved. Is load balancing while preserving order of logs sent to ES impossible?
