I tried to run filebeat to monitor a path that involved a symlink.
symlink: /var/log/current -> /var/log/version1 paths: /var/log/current/logs/abc.log Actual file location: /var/log/version1/logs/abc.log
The file names and paths are only indicative and not actual.
There were permission issues(read permission was not there on the actual path but on symlink path) with the symlink but filebeat did not throw any error.
Is this by design or a bug?
