In v1.0 of a platform, we had a Windows service read from SQL Server settings to determine which RSS feeds request data from with filters and on a schedule. The feed locations and filters were all based on specific account-related settings.
In working on the planning stages of a v2.0, I am going to be using the ELK stack as the foundation. As such, I am looking for suggestions on how to accomplish the same types of activities. For example, I have been reading about Beats and how it may be better than using LogStash for this.
We will also be consuming data from physical devices as well, where they may report to the server, or the server may need to make a request to the devices.
Can someone please lead me in the right direction for these requests?
