i have a doubt in packetbeat..do we have to install packetbeat in mysql database server to monitor the 3306 port..or we can install in other Ubuntu server and configure packetbeat to monitor the MySQL database server ??
Beats should be installed on the server you want to monitor. So Packetbeat should be installed on your MySQL database server.
In the case of Packetbeat it is also possible to monitor the network traffic to/from the MySQL server at a different point in the network. This is an advanced setup requiring knowledge of the network architecture and devices. One can use a network tap or a port mirror off a switch to receive a copy of the traffic and have Packetbeat monitor that traffic. This would allow for a dedicated machine to be used for Packetbeat.
