Packetbeat: monitoring elasticsearch

Can I ask, is packetbeat able to monitor inter-node communications in an elasticsearch cluster?


No, it currently doesn't understand the protocol used between the Elasticsearch nodes. Conceptually this would be possible, but likely fairly complex to implement.

Some of the more interesting monitoring scenarios relate to distributed systems like Elasticsearch and Cassandra. Atm, the protocol coverage of packetbeat seems rather narrow :frowning:
