How do you run multiple functionbeats?

Our team will want to run multiple functionbeats for cloudwatch logs mainly because will have different structured logs residing up there. Therefore, will need separate indexes to hold logs of similarity in structure to improve aggregation.

My understand (and please correct me if I'm wrong) is that you can only specify one index per functionbeat as well as give it a name. If you want more than one functionbeat index (like for my use case above) I'll need another functionbeat instance correct?

How do I go about running "n" number of instances? I can't seem to find a reference to this in the docs. Do i download another instance, create another yaml file, do both, or what?
