How to add new index pattern in kibana 4 without using another client server?


We have an existing ELK server which we monitor logs from a csv format file that logrotates everynight. We are using a logstash-forwarder to do this. It's using the default index pattern in kibana.

I would like to add another index pattern that would monitor another log in csv format without touching the one that I have now. I was instructed to define a new logstash-forwarded. How can I define a new logstash-forwarder with creating a new host to serve as a client host?

Can you recommend a good guide link / tips on how to do this?

You should upgrade to filebeat, LSF is no longer supported.
