Reading the logs from Remote server

Whether filebeat can read the logs from remote linux/Windows servers? Path field can be set to remote server folder path?

So is it possible to have multiple instances of filesbeats installed on a single server and they can read the different logs from remote servers?

Reading files from remote hosts via network volumes is not recommended and can cause problems. Best pracice is to deploy filebeat where the logs are generated.

Great. Thank you for your quick response.

Whether the filebeat does support reading file from a remote server?
Primarily the PULL instead of PUSH.

Did you look at the link I provided?
