Lowering Metricbeat Output Doc Count

I have Metricbeat configured with default settings and it sends somewhere near 20 docs every 10 seconds. Is there a way to lower this amount ? All I want to use it for is metrics on the entire system not individual processes is there a way to disable that to save some space? Thanks!


pick metricsets that are interesting for you: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-module-system.html

You can also use the "drop_event" processor and selected only the expected ones: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/drop-event.html

Thank you so much! This pushed me in the right direction I was able to make it work exactly as intended.
