we have loab balance setting in filebeat output.logstash
Why dont we have loadbalnace setting for output.kafka?
Is it so that it doesnt send kafka outputs in load balanced mode?
Case1:I f I have 3 Brokers of Kafka. And I mentioned only 2 hosts in output config of filebeat. Will it work? Will it send events evenly to 3 brokers?
Case2: What if I add 2 more brokers tomorrow to my kafka cluster, so total 5 brokers. Do I need to mention anyone of those new broker to filebeat output?
Case3: If I mentione Broker-0, broker-1 and Broker-2 in filbeat kafka output configuration, and one of the broker is out of network, what will happent to the filebeat? Will it survive with other 2 brokers and run happily? Or it will keep retryin till brokers comes up and running, Or it will die after sometime?
Please help in above 3 scenarios.
