is there any option to monitor linux inodes with metricbeat?

Thank you

What about this [1]?

system.filesystem.free_files
The number of free file nodes in the file system.

Looking at the code, it calls syscall STATFS, about which tutorialspoint [2] says:

long f_ffree; /* total file nodes in file system */

In my understanding, on filesystems like EXT2/3/4 and XFS every file node consumes a single inode. And vice-versa, every inode represents a file node.
