How to get service status information from kafka connectors


I have three kafka brokers take/ write data from everywhere into topics, after that filebeat kafka-connectors index all topics data into Elasticsearch indexes. My question is, are there any easy ways to get logs or beat to send mail to admin group when kafka-connector.service stops. I would like to get different opinions as well, there must be a lot of ways to accomplish this.

We are currently logging kafka-connect.log file into Elasticsearch and full-text search "fail" inside the message field and create watchers to fire mails, but that seems a bit weird in my opinion.

Best regards.
