Interest in LANZBeat?


Is there interest in, or is someone in the community already working on, a Beat for LANZ, the Arista Latency Analyzer? LANZ outputs to syslog as well as CSV, and also has a CLI and API. Perhaps using FileBeat via the CSV output would be a good option instead of creating a new Beat?

Please share your thoughts!


For syslog output and CSV output you can configure filebeat to forward the lines to logstash. In logstash you can use the grok or csv filters to parse the LANZ output.

In future we might have some metricsbeat with support for custom scripts making that might make use if some CSV output. But nothing specific is planed yet.
