Dump RRD files into logstash to visualise in Kibana

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.

  1. Is there any other mechanism? I am new to RDD as well as Logstash.
  2. 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?
  3. I have rdd dump in xml format as well, if it opens up the possibility of more solutions
