Filebeat removed, but still logging

I wanted to uninstall Filebeat (since I'm not there yet), so I did sudo yum remove filebeat. Successful. However, there are still logs generted as below.

How come filebeat generate logs when it's uninstalled?

2020-11-19T10:30:37.593+0100 INFO [monitoring] log/log.go:145 Non-zero metrics in the last 30s {"monitoring": {"metrics": {"beat":{"cgroup":{"cpuacct":{"total":{"ns":97624973}}},"cpu":{"system":{"ticks":528960,"time":{"ms":73}},"total":{"ticks":877450,"time":{"ms":97},"value":877450},"user":{"ticks":348490,"time":{"ms":24}}},"handles":{"limit":{"hard":262144,"soft":1024},"open":22},"info":{"ephemeral_id":"c2156e88-26d1-4098-8abb-9880926222f2","uptime":{"ms":465750072}},"memstats":{"gc_next":40346336,"memory_alloc":21694880,"memory_total":7472541256},"runtime":{"goroutines":54}},"filebeat":{"harvester":{"open_files":0,"running":0}},"libbeat":{"config":{"module":{"running":1}},"pipeline":{"clients":4,"events":{"active":0}}},"registrar":{"states":{"current":0}},"system":{"load":{"1":0.06,"15":0.13,"5":0.06,"norm":{"1":0.015,"15":0.0325,"5":0.015}}}}}}

What does rpm -qi |grep filebeat return?

Sorry, didn't know you could uninstall an application and still have it running :slight_smile:

Stopping filebeat solved the problem :slight_smile:
