Log files that dont exist

Lets say I want to maintain a single filebeat.yml file for all of our servers. Obviously all of the servers server different applications. What what would happen if a filebeat.yml had 50 input log files, but only one or two of those log files actually existed?

That should work fine, Filebeat will keep checking if a file with the configured name/glob showed up, but it won't error if no matching file exists.

Thats exactly what I needed to hear. Thanks Tudor
