Filebeat loadbalancer logstash scalability


If I use Filebeat internal loadbalancer, and say I want to add a new logstash node. I would have to take down all my filebeat instances and then change the configuration and start them up, right ? Is there another way ? Please suggest.

We have like 20 nodes that have filebeat running ( and two logstash instances), and it will increase in the future. It is bit inconvenient to take down and start all of them. What is a good combination of filebeat nodes-logstash nodes.

Thank you!

You could use a load balancer in front of things. Or maybe a DNS CNAME with multiple records.

Thank you! I will try the load balancer.
