Logstash output for filebeat xpack monitoring


(Justin Grevich) #1

Is it possible to configure filebeat to send its monitoring metrics through logstash rather than have filebeat access the ES cluster directly?

I can't seem to figure out how to do this and the documentation seems to suggest that it needs to connect directly to the ES cluster.

Right now filebeat monitoring only publishes to Elasticsearch. There is no data path via Logstash. For isolation/proxy purposes one can also setup nginx.

Thanks Steffens. Let me make sure I understand what you're suggesting. Are you saying that a workaround is to use nginx or some form of a proxy on the logstash instance(s) to forward the requests to the ES cluster?

Yes.

Got it, thanks!
