Socket, REST, or WebSocket API into Elastic?

Hello All,

Is there a way to push logs/metrics directly into Elastic without FB and LS?

Imagine a process where I have a metric called "Price" for a NASDAQ security. I want to push the {"ticker": "MSFT", "price", 250.62} directly into the system without a disk write, Filebeat, and logstash.

Can I set up a socket connection directly into the database? Can I establish a Websocket connection? A HTTP/RESTful endpoint to directly insert records?

Elasticsearch is built to interact with HTTP based APIs, so you can do all of that.

This chapter of the docs goes into some of that, with examples - Getting started with Elasticsearch | Elasticsearch Reference [7.10] | Elastic
