Hi, I have a multiple types of log files which requires different configurations such as includes for one type of file and exclude for other file type.
I generally used to do my configuration in filebeat.yml, which requires filebeat to be restarted always, whenever I make changes in configuration.
Hence, is there an alternative method which I can use?
Welcome to the Elastic Community!
If you want multiple configurations to be enabled in Filebeat, one thing you can do is as below which I generally follow
Create a folder config in Filebeat path. Inside the path, provide your separate input.yml files so that it can automatically pick each of your configurations.
path: C:\Program Files\Filebeat\config\*.yml
This reload setting loads all the changes done in the configuration files automatically.
Thanks for the solution. I have tried it and works absolutely right for me.
