Log Rotation

Is there a way in the beats config to rotate the log files. Running out of storage daily.

You can configure Filebeat to rotate its own log files based on size and you can configure the number of log files to keep. By default it keeps 7 logs files of 10MB each. See the logging options for more details: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/configuration-logging.html#_files_rotateeverybytes

Filebeat does not rotate or manage in any way the files that it monitors. For that I would recommend using system tools like logrotate.

Thank You
