Check filebeat status using API on local host


Is it possible to check filebeat status locally on the host using API/CLI where it is running ?
We are trying to build monitoring around filebeat to check whether it is up, connected to remote ElasticSearch endpoint correctly and processing logs.


Yes, see

Why not use our Monitoring functionality to do this?

Thanks @shaunak.

@warkolm, Do you mean centralized monitoring from Kibana ?
Our immediate requirement is to make sure filebeat is up and running with correct version when any changes on the host machine happens. In case of issues, would like to rollback. Hence, the need for local host based basic monitoring.
