Beats on Heroku (rails)

Is there a good way to setup Elastic beats (filebeat, heartbeat, etc.) on Heroku (rails app)?

All the setup instructions have you download the packages and run the beat servers. Doing this for each Heroku dyno everytime a dyno restarts seems wrong to me, but unsure. Is there a better way?

I would look into using a syslog drain and sending that to filebeat running on another server. Heroku doesn't seem like a good fit for Heatbeat IMHO, it'd make more sense to put that on a standard virtual instance.
