Metricbeat configuration multiples modules with different outputs

Hello everyone,

I have a problem with ELK and I would like to ask you for help...

I have activated 2 modules metricbeat: System and Logstash-xpack.

I need to send the data from the System module to logstash node and the data from the Logstash-xpack module directly to the elastic cluster.

Hi @melzi, unfortunately Metricbeat only supports a single output, it's clearly stated on our documentation:

You configure Metricbeat to write to a specific output by setting options in the Outputs section of the metricbeat.yml config file. Only a single output may be defined.

What you can do to circumvent this is to use two different instances of Metricbeat, each one with a module and an output.
