Is there any way to constantly send some ping to Logstash?


i am using ELK GA 5.0.0. I would like to know if its possible to send some pings to Logstash with timestamp so that it can be passed to some dedicated index, and there by confirm that the beat is alive. Is there any similar mechanism / workaround?

Thanks in advance..

This feature currently does not exist. But as a workaround you could watch a certain file with filebeat. You have a script that writes a line to this file every x seconds. The prospector which monitors this field could have a special label which you route to a special index. And that is your ping :slight_smile:
