do you know / it is possible to use new logstash monitoring API (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/logstash/5.x/node-stats-api.html) to get information if Logstash is "capable" to digest all data that are send to him or logs are starting to stack in queue ?
Currently our deployment does not have any MQ (kafka, redis) for high resilience. So i would like somehow discover if logstash has some problems -> connect to it to our internal monitoring system.
thank you very much !
i have found that '_node/stats/process' can give CPU 'load_average' -> but i dont know if i can consider this number as relevant to logstash performance/capabilities :-/
