Noob situation and questions:
I have a setup where I can run filebeat and send updated logs back to elasticsearch. This works well on conventional linux servers where I can control what is installed. However, some entities have additional information that I may want to retrieve (a cisco router, for example). This Router may or may not have a REST interface so it seems like something as simple as screen scraping a cli to retrieve statistics is the Least common denominator.
- Is there a plugin that I can use to scrape a cli interface via telnet or ssh ?
- Is there a plugin to retrieve information over a restApi ?
- Is there a better way of retrieving information that may not be presented via a standard syslog interface?
