Following the documentation at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/packetbeat/master/configuration-logging.html I was looking for a way to disable logrotate. Is that even possible at all? How well would packetbeat deal with an external logrotate mechanism?
My reason is: The logfiles within my distributed system sit by convention in a specific directory. There is already logrotate.d configured for that directory, I don't want another entity manage the logs specifically for packetbeat.
Thanks for your advice!
