Repeatedly dashboard importing is needed for same beats in multiple machines?

Hi All ,

   Dashboard importing is needed for same beat agents in multiple machines ?

For Example I am planning to install metricbeat in 10 Linux machines . Is there dashboard importing is needed in all 10 Linux machines or required only for the first beat installing machine only ?

hi @rijinmp, do you mean importing the default dashboards to Kibana? If there is one instance of Kibana then one import is sufficient. Let us know if the scenario is different.

Thanks @MarianaD.
The situation is like 1 kibana and metricbeat installed 100 Linux machines .
In deatis : do I need to run this command "metricbeat setup --dashboards " from 1 Linux machine or from 100 Linux machines .

only in the first install of the beat
