I'm trying to use multiple config files located in /etc/filebeat. The default config is stored as filebeat.yml, with additional configs stored as $service.yml. I've verified that all the configs are working and functional by using the "-c config.yml -e -d "*"" switches against each .yml. When starting filebeat, only one prospector and accompanying paths from filebeat.yml are active. I'm using filebeat version 5.0.0-rc1.
I'm trying to use the same approach with packetbeat and metricbeat, whereby system defaults are located in *beat.yml, and additional services are defined in $service.yml via configuration management (ansible).
Any help/suggestions would be most welcome!
