Should I create an SQL Output for beats


TL;DR: I was thinking about making an output plugin for SQL.

I tried the Elastic Stack for a few month with my private project, but the Stack seems too big for it and I am very comfortable in SQL. Now I was searching for a metricbeat alternative that is able to output SQL. Because I didn't find anything (and kind of fell in love with metricbeat) I was thinking about doing it myself.
Do you think I should try to contribute it back to beats or do you think that it doesn't fit for the beats to be able to output to sql?

Kind regards.


Are you referring to alternative for SQL metricbeat module in Agent ?



no, I am referring to an alternative output, not to metric collection.
I don't want to write the data to elasticsearch, I want to write it to mysql.
