Hi,

I'm running a test cluster and a production cluster, metricbeats is one of the things posting data into both of these.

In the metricbeat-* index pattern on my dev cluster the `host` field is searchable and aggregatable but on my production cluster I have a `host` field (searchable and analyzed) and a `host.keyword` (searchable and aggregatable) alongside it. I don't know how that got there, I haven't been messing with the mapping API or the template files.

Because my dev/prod clusters have different fields it's messing up my [ElastAlert](https://github.com/Yelp/elastalert) YAML, one references host and the other needs host.keyword.

Which setup is correct according to MetricBeat defaults and how do I get them in sync?
