ETL Tool?


#1

Hello!

I'm newbie in Beat.

Is Beat a ETL tool to integrate different data source from different database and then merge all data into one common and single database?

What context is Beat beats being used in business? Any concrete example?

Thank you!

The Beats library is a building block for making programs that send pieces of data (like log events) to e.g. Logstash, Elasticsearch, or Kafka. I'm sure you can use it as one part of an ETL tool but that's not its intended purpose.

Do you have any concrete example that Beat is being used in business context?

Thank you!
