[odbcbeat] Gather analytics from SQL databases


Is there any existing solution to periodically execute SQL queries, and put result to ElasticSearch?

I'm pretty new to Go, and think that writing a new beat for that could be also a good start to dive in Go. But when I looked to the packetbeat source tree (as libbeat README suggests) my first thought was - "Is there any not such complex example how to use libbeat?"

There's the Logstash JDBC input plugin which might do what you are looking for.

Regarding libbeat, we now have a new Beat developer guide which uses Topbeat as an example. Topbeat is a lot simpler then Packetbeat, so we should update the readme.
