I am using Filebeat 5.1 on Centos Linux and have following constraints =>
- need to run multiple Filebeat instances on same hosts.
- Each instance shall work with its own config yml.
- Start and stop individual Filebeat instances without affecting other instances.
Can anybody provide more details how to achieve any of the above requirements ?
Also, it will be helpful to know whether there is any API by which I can start/stop Filebeat.
Using /etc/init.d/filebeat restart command somewhat not really good way to start/stop process on production hosts.
