Add Host metadataedit

Warning

This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is considered to be less mature than official GA features. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

The add_host_metadata processor annotates each event with relevant metadata from the host machine. The fields added to the event are looking as following:

{
   "host":{
      "architecture":"x86_64",
      "name":"example-host",
      "id":"",
      "os":{
         "family":"darwin",
         "build":"16G1212",
         "platform":"darwin",
         "version":"10.12.6"
      },
      "ip": ["192.168.0.1", "10.0.0.1"],
      "mac": ["00:25:96:12:34:56", "72:00:06:ff:79:f1"]
   }
}
Note

The host information is refreshed every 5 minutes.
