Hi, I have an ELK server (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana on the same server) and I monitor a remote server with Filebeat and Metricbeat installed on it. Should I install Filebeat and Metricbeat on the ELK server? Is it useful? Does ELK have an overload system of its own default server?
you don't have to install it.
When I tested metricbeat. I did install on ELK server because I wanted to monitor that as well.
it comes with pre-define dashboard. you have to enable that in metricbeat.yml file
and you can do that only on one system and your kibana will populate with all dashboard.
This will create lot of visulize and dashboard. you can manage that by
you can remove unneeded part or move it.
