Breaking changes

Metricbeat

  • Change data structure of experimental haproxy module. 3003

Filebeat

  • If a file is falling under ignore_older during startup, offset is now set to end of file instead of 0. With the previous logic the whole file was sent in case a line was added and it was inconsistent with files which were harvested previously. 2907
  • tail_files is now only applied on the first scan and not for all new files. 2932
