Is there interest in something like a MonitBeat?

Hey Guys,

I was curious if there was interest in something like a MonitBeat which forwards Monit data over to Elasticsearch. Monit exposes an undocumented XML API locally which can be used to retrieve data from Monit without relying on the underlying OS.

Hi @kkirsche

MonitBeat sounds like a great idea. We are planning a more generic Metric / SysBeat to fetch system data (see also TopBeat). This Beat should also be extensible to fetch data from services like MonitBeat. It would be great to have a MonitBeat as it would also give indications on how we can generalise the implementation. In case you start to work on it and need some help, let us know.
