What is the difference between Logstash and FileBeat?
Which one we can use at which scenario?

Thanks...

In short, filebeat is for your edge nodes, logstash is more a very powerful server side component for processing and much more. So it can very well be you need Filebeat to read your logs, and Logstash to process your logs.
