Read logs from another server and ship to logstash using filebeat

Hi all,
I am setting up a an independent machine to run all ELK services together, but I have to read the log files from other servers, in specific they are all haproxy.

so my question is:
is it possible to setup and run filebeat with various Prospectors that read log file from 3 or more different servers with different IP address? or I have to install and run filebeat on each of these machines and send the log to my ELK machine?

actually I searched for it but i didn't find a document or something that can help me on it.

thanks and regards.

You would deploy Filebeat on each of the servers producing haproxy logs. Filebeat is intended for reading files from local disks.

Thanks, actually I am doing this, and the whole system works without problems.
