I'm currently using filebeat 1.2.3, on Debian Jessie and unless I do not understand properly the documentation about the use of a host list and loadbalance: false in the logstash output, it seems not working as expected.
"...If set to false, the output plugin sends all events to only one host (determined at random) and will switch to another host if the selected one..."
It's always picking the host1 never host2.
I tried over 25 machines...
### Logstash as output logstash: # The Logstash hosts hosts: ["host1:5044","host2:5044"] # Number of workers per Logstash host. #worker: 1 # Optional load balance the events between the Logstash hosts loadbalance: false
I'm I missing something? Or it is a bug?
