I have RRD(Round Robin Database) files which contains the statistics of a remote server(collected using collectd). The requirement is to put this data on elastic search for analysis purpose.
One of the solution suggested in the previous blogs was to use filebeat.
- Is there any other mechanism? I am new to RDD as well as Logstash.
- I see with rrdtool one can convert rrd files into json. Does it make more sense to use rrdtool to convert rdd into json and then put it on logstash?
- I have rdd dump in xml format as well, if it opens up the possibility of more solutions
