I downloaded Filebeat from (https://artifacts.elastic.co/downloads/beats/filebeat/filebeat-5.2.2-linux-x86_64.tar.gz) and extracted the tar on my Ubuntu 14.04 machine.
I run Filebeat on my Ubuntu terminal with the following command:
./filebeat -c filebeat.yml
I want to add new prospectors to filebeat.yml and then restart Filebeat. How to restart filebeat extracted from the downloaded tar? Does running the command <./filebeat -c filebeat.yml>
again ensure previous filebeat gets stopped and filebeat starts again from where it let off?
