Need to install additional plugins along with metricbeat


I need to install additional plugins. like redis, mongodb along with metricbeat on remote hosts.

Can someone help me in fixing it.

All of the modules and metricsets are statically compiled into the Metricbeat binary. There are no additional plugins to install.

If you are instead referring to configuration multiple modules then you should use the modules.d directory. You write a file into this directory for each module you'd like to configure. See Metricbeat - Specify which modules to run.

Basically you put files into /etc/metricbeat/modules.d/<some-name>.yml and Metricbeat will read them and enable the modules defined within the file. This is an example what that file would contain:

- module: apache
  metricsets: ["status"]
  hosts: [""]
