So I got a working example working using a Postgres Database and Logstash/ElasticSearch and Kibana. It's basic....but it works.
Im very new to this, so I don't think I truly understand what Logstash does vs ElasticSearch (Kibana seems understandable enough).
However I came across this: https://github.com/jprante/elasticsearch-jdbc
and im not entirely sure what the difference is....besides not using logstash and it not being an official plugin? Im basically wanting to just display sensor data (from a weather sensor database on Postgres) to be searchable within some "Fancy" kibana visualizations.
Is there a better tool?
