I got myself through some hiccups, but I finally got the 'make package' working. Now a few questions
- I can build with or without snapshot. Not sure what the difference is
- I can install my custom package
sudo dpkg -i udpproto-6.3.3-SNAPSHOT-amd64.debbut that installs it under \etc\udpproto. Does every module need a new folder? Is it possible I can deploy this to the installed metricbeat\modules.d folder?
- I also noticed it has it's own service. But ideally I just want to use the metricbeat service.
- I could not find much documentation on how to install a custom module and what are the best practices. I keep on getting back to the standard shipped modules that comes with metricbeat.
I'm sure these are just a lot of newbie questions for a first time module creator. The code generation and examples got me pretty far. Just have to get over that last part on deploying and installation...
