[ANN] output-status : Monitoring logstash with http

Heartbeat is a great tool to provide constant flow of events. But, what can I do with such events? logging to a file and watch the modification date? pushing the event to my monitoring tool?

Status page, juste like Elasticsearch does, is the most simple way for monitoring.

This plugin steals code from http input and elapsed filter. The status page show the latest event, and its age.

This plugin needs a code review.

Good job!
