So I wanted to build some dashboards with metric data about my elasticsearch instance.
From the endpoint Get /nodes/_stats I get all the data I need.
With the metricset "node_stats" from the metricbeat module "elasticsearch" I get only a portion of this data. This is really frustrating since the stack monitoring dashboard (auto generated in kibana) seems to have access to this data via xpack monitoring.
Can I access this data any other way than via the endpoint?
