I installed metricbeat on 3 machines with key partition strategy. The key is the ecs host.hostname. So far so good. The partitioning works. But there is a little problem. Every three instances chooses the same partition. How can I tell the kafka output module to ship the metrics in a specific partition. I assume that the "problem" exists in filebat as well. I assume that's the same output module, isn't it?
IMHO a config option like partition.number: x can solve this issue.
