metricbeat - metricbeat stops publishing events to Redis #5404
Metricbeat 6.0.0-rc1 stops publishing events to Redis (using the redis output module) after some time, depending on the events volume, but usually in the 4000-5000 events range.
Enabling debugging does not give any futher info; after reaching 4000-5000 events metricbeat continue running but no events are published to redis while the log is filled with INFO level messages like this one:
It should be noted that metricbeat successfully works when configured to use Logstash publishing instead (using the logstash output module).
Tests were performed enablding only the system module, only the vsphere module and finally both of them; all the configurations triggered the problem; please also note the same configurations worked fine in 6.0.0-alpha2.
