Refreshing configuration

I've killed HB, made changes for heartbeat.monitors on my heartbeat.yml config file, and restarted HB... but it keeps monitoring the old configuration? Changes include commenting out a full type and changing tags on other types.
Is there a way to force this refresh?

There are no additional steps other than restarting the Beat.

A few things that could be causing this:

  • You are looking at old events generated with the old configuration.
  • You are modifying the wrong config file. Look for Config path: in the log.
  • It restarted automatically shortly after you killed it and before any changes to the configuration.

for the one I was messing around when I posted this, I think it was the first option. After a while, new data started arriving as supposed!
