I have built a beat and now i would like to test it on ES. How to?

Could you please share resources on how to test a beat on Elastic Search & Kibana for storing metrics and monitoring ?

Start elasticsearch
Start your beat

And that should be ok

I started local elastic server and ran beat. After showing few events on console Beat threw following exception

`goroutine 24 [running]:`
`panic(0x4be640, 0xc4201d6440)`
`/usr/local/go/src/runtime/panic.go:500 +0x1a1`
`github.com/deepujain/nvidiagpubeat/vendor/github.com/elastic/beats/libbeat/outputs/elasticsearch.eventBulkMeta(0x7c4340, 0xc42015c940, 0x0, 0xc4201dc7e0, 0x0, 0x567edc, 0x34)`

And Elastic server threw
[2017-03-18T08:59:14,396][WARN ][o.e.c.r.a.DiskThresholdMonitor] [lyCrftU] high disk watermark [90%] exceeded on [lyCrftU3SSiJPNZg9A4G-Q][lyCrftU][/Users/beats_dev/beats/src/github.com/deepujain/elastic/elasticsearch-5.2.2/data/nodes/0] free: 41.8gb[9%], shards will be relocated away from this node

  1. Have i run out of disk space ? How do i clean up.
  2. Beat was running just for few seconds and it ran out of space very quickly, is there a way i can increase elastic search size limits ?
  3. Assuming disk error is resolved, where do i see ingested data ?

For the beat exception, I'd open an issue in beats project or ask on #beats forum.

Elasticsearch just warns here and it does not have any effect on beat. Just that replicas won't be assigned on your nodes.
