Filter the data sent by filebeat

Hello Everyone,

I have a small problem with filebeat and logstash.

On my logstash machine I receive data from two different servers (filebeat). The problem is that I don't want to apply the same filters to the 2 servers because they send different logs.

So my question is how to make logstash know what log it receives and what filter apply to it.

Thank you a lot.

On the Filebeat side set different types for each type of log (use the document_type option), then use conditionals on the Logstash side to choose which filters to use for each type.

Thank you very much it's work !

I have another question now: how do I send the data in different indexes ? (elasticsearch)

You can use conditionals in the output section too.

It works. Thank you for your help @magnusbaeck !
