How to create a custom field in metricbeat?

(Raj Kumar) #1


I have two queries,

  1. I want to collect total count of CPU in a server but it is not available in metricbeat. so how can I
    collect total number of cpu?

  2. Along with metricbeat data I need to send some custom ID which may represent tenant_ID or
    server_ID. so it will hep me to analyze the data based on tenant_ID

Thanks a lot,

  1. You want the number of physical processors? You should be able to get that data from /proc/cpuinfo. If you wanted to customize Metricbeat to report this data we have a developer guide that we are working on readying for the GA release.

  2. You can use fields to add arbitrary data to every event.

when we will get GA release

The developer guide is already now in quite a good state to start using it, no need to wait for GA.
