It is my understanding that Logstash can handle multiple instances of filebeat. My question is whether there is a pro to configuring multiple Logstash instances to handle 3-4 filebeat instances (all on different servers).
Also, for now I have one filebeat instance sending to logstash on a different server. If I were to add another filebeat instance, would I need to restart logstash for it to recognize a new filebeat input?
Thanks in advance.
