Monitoring Cluster - monitoring using metricbeat or xpack self default monitoring?

What are the pro and cons of monitoring using metricbeat vs default elasticseaech http export? I have a separate monitoring cluster?

Why switch to metricbeat if default self xpack monitoring can also do the same job?

As I understand, longer term we are going to be moving everything to Metricbeat. So doing it now just means you're prepared.

Yeah, I have read that from Elastic documentation but I just wanted to know the reasoning. Why they choose another agent when xpack itself could have handled those things?
