Packetbeat for monitoring a microservice

Hi!

I'm doing my first tests with packetbeat.
I wanted to monitor a microservice (basically http codes of responses, latency, size of responses) but it has been impossible so far.

The service listens on a specific port. I change the configuration to include this port:

  • type: http

    Configure the ports where to listen for HTTP traffic. You can disable

    the HTTP protocol by commenting out the list of ports.

    ports: [80, 8080, 8000, 5000, 8002, MYPORT]

but I do not see any information in ES related to the activity of my service.

My questions in this regard are:
. Is packetbeat the right option for this requirement? Or should I try with another component of the stack?
. What configuration change should I make in order to audit the traffic of my service?
. What configuration change should I make in order to audit ONLY the traffic of my service?

Thanks in advance

I found in APM capabilities:
[APM Overview [7.12] | Elastic]
what i was needing.

Thanks a lot!
