I am deploying applications to AWS including various services. I am planning to use Kibana and Elasticsearch to view metrics from Cloudwatch. I know I can configure metricbeat by using AWS module which works as a crawler to pull metrics data from AWS to Elasticsearch. But there is another mode which is to use Cloudwatch metric stream to stream metics data to analytics platform.
I wonder how does metricbeat support stream data to Elasticsearch. Is there a metrics server I can use to listen on the metric data stream?
