As stated I'm new to beats and are looking at Beats as a replacement for NXlog in the first place.
in the documentation for Winlogbeat it says that i Should configure it for Kibana (Configure the Kibana endpoint).
I don't understand why that should be needed.
For example I dont my DMZ machines to be able to talk to my presentation layer. I want them talking to a Kafka host.
Why does a log collector need to talk to the presentation layer?
Can it work without this?
What are the effects of that?
as I said. I'm new to beats so I might have missed the answers totally but please just give me a tip to there to find them in that case
