I was wondering if there is a beat which can periodically call a HTTP endpoint which outputs JSON, and index that data straight into Elasticsearch?
This is useful for PHP opcache information, for instance (which must be fetched over the HTTP layer).
I think heartbeat can help you
Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think it is specific enough.
I think I will create my own beat (with https://github.com/kozlice/phpfpmbeat as an example).
yeah you can create your own beat with your own logic is not difficult to do i have already created a beat for a specific use case good luck than
this is a native feature of metricbeat.
both polling a http endpoint and being a http endpoint that you can push into.
I use it myself to poll the endpoints of some application and ship that into es. The /metrics of flume comes to mind as an example I use. as there is no flume module.
@martinr_ubi awesome! Thanks, I'll take a look at it.
