Monitor Filebeat's Uptime

Can Heartbeat be configured to monitor a filebeat instance and alert when that beat goes down?

Is there another way to determine when a beat is not running when it should be?

During version upgrades sometime a beat will fail to restart, how can we alert when that happens?

Hearbeat is designed to inspect various endpoints (http, icmp, tcp, etc..)
and Filebeat does not spawn any listeners.
However, there is lots of internal monitoring available for filebeat.

If you set this up you can then create alerts in Kibana to let you know if any data does not appear for a period of time.
