I'm new to ELK on AWS, I have set up an ELK cluster on one node/EC2 instance (may expand later). Also I set up a linux server(EC2 instance) with filebeat and metricbeat running and sending logs and metrics to Logstash. I can see data showing up on Kibana from this Server where filebeat and metricbeat run on.
Now I have set up filebeat and metricbeat on other EC2 instances(linux and Windows), my questions are:
- When setting up filebeat and metricbeat on new servers, do I have to re-run
a. metricbeat/filebeat setup --template -E output.logstash.enabled=false -E .....
b. metricbeat/filebeat setup --dashboards
- Do we have to create new indexes on ELK to handle the data from different servers?
