Load balancing


#1

All,

I'm coming up to speed with the ELK stack in general and have a couple questions about best practices.

I'm starting with ingesting IIS logs with Filebeat -> Logstash -> Elasticsearch. I am loadbalancing with:

filebeat.yml

output:

logstash:
hosts: ["host1:5044", "host2:5044", "host3:5044"]
loadbalance: true

iis.yml

output {

elasticsearch {

hosts => ["host1:9200", "host2:9200", "host3:9200"]
manage_template => false
index => "%{[@metadata][beat]}"
document_type => "%{[@metadata][type]}"

}

  1. Is this best way to configure load balancing, basically load balance at the beat level as well as the logstash level into ES?
  2. Is there a way to see which node info traveled through to ES, i.e. filebeat -> node2 logstash -> node1 ES?

Thanks in advance,

HB
