Message Audits


#1

Hi,
Does filebeat keep track of how many messages it sends over a period? Can this be sent as metrics so that some kind of audit of message count received vs message count sent can be performed?

Regards,
David

Libbeat (which is the shared library behind filebeat) does some tracking and message counting if -httpprof is enabled. These metrics are currently mainly for debugging purpose. We have some plans to add some more monitoring which would include this kind of data: https://github.com/elastic/beats/issues/463
