Hi, unfortunately i don't have a direct access (no fw access possible) to my target server i want collect metrcis from with metricbeat. The idea is now to export the metrics to a json file instead of pushing it directly to es. Is it possible to save the json output on a nfs share (both machines have access to) and push the json regulary to es without logstash (via filebeat or via curl direct to es)?
Using the file output and filebeat on another machine for pushing the data to ES/LS is possible. But we don't really recommend the use of network shares, as these contribute to a number of problems/failures when processing data via files (e.g. network down/slow, buffers being send out-of-order -> half-empty files...)
