Observability Engineer Training - Modules


I can't keep the heartbeat/metricbeat/filebeat modules running even if I start on the background mode. The machine changes all the time. Is there an option to have this up and running for ever ?


Unfortunately, there is not. The servers run in the cloud, and since the beats are generally running inside a container inside the cloud server, there's no reasonable way for us to get them back up and running without going through the effort of deploying the beat as a system service inside the container. It's possible, but a little time consuming and arcane if you're not familiar with Linux system services already. I don't really have much of a suggestion beyond just remembering to start the beats back up again when you come back from a long break.
