How to extend MetricBeat to execute external scripts?

(dergane) #1

Hi all,
I've got some "old" probes based on snmp command (snmpwalk, snmpget).
I would like to reuse them. How can extend metricbeat to execute my old scripts?

Hi @pascaldergane, and sorry for the late response :slight_smile:

As of today this is something not supported by Metricbeat, but you have at least 2 options to do it:

  • execbeat is a community beat that does exactly that, run an external binary or script and report its metrics.
  • Use the new graphite compatible server to push your metrics to Metricbeat

Let me know what do you think, thank you for the feedback!
