Filebeat rate limiting question

Hello there, we would like to limit the producer rates from our filebeat into kafka. I found rate_limit processor from below link can be used, but I am confused about what dropping the events mean. Is filebeat retrying the dropped events later or they are just ignored?

Also is there another way to throttle filebeat kafka output plugins?

filebeat 8.2

Best regards,
