Packetbeat on Heroku

(rjsjr) #1

Is it possible to use Packetbeat on Heroku? I have a rails app running on Heroku that currently pushes log files to an EC2 instance running logstash. Logstash then forwards the logs to 2 EC2 hosts running ES. I have another EC2 instance running kibana.

My goal is to view the health of my rails app and postgres db. Currently, I am only able to view errors parsed from the logs and the raw log files.

What I've seen from packetbeat is EXACTLY what I am looking for! Understanding how to integrate it into my Heroku instance is the part I need help with.

From what I know of heroku, no you can't.
