The Architecture of entperise log management system based on Elastic Stack 5.0.1 and Kafka

(Obsicn) #1

In blog "Just Enough Kafka for the Elastic Stack(, Logstash takes the role of Shipper.

But Filebeat 5.0.1 can support Kafka Output Configuration( So can LogstashShipper been removed and Filebeat send the data directly to Kafka?

Yes, that'll work.

Hi Magnus, Thanks for your quick help.

If we choose Elastic Stack 5.0.1, filebeat send the log to kafka directly is a recommended solution for enterprise log management deployment? Just want to get the confirmation.

Thank you very much.

I haven't tried any of the solutions myself but given Logstash's larger footprint I'd prefer using Filebeat if possible.
