Metric beat system metrics

(Ravi Shanker Reddy Kourla) #1

I am using metric beat to get the system metrics using system module.
I started the metric beat on all required nodes and metric data is coming properly to elastic search and able to see the data using default dashboards provided.

My question:
On one of the server, I increased CPU cores from 4 to 8, but metric beat is still sending the old value [4].
When I restart the metric beat after increasing the CPU cores it is sending the correct value.
Can you please let me know why do I need to restart the metric beat after changing the cores, does metric beat can't pickup the latest cpu cores?

You're correct. Metricbeat needs to be restarted for the new number of CPU cores to be picked up.

Opened an issue to fix it:
