I've just setup Elastic with Amazon Web Services hosted feature. Once I set that up I setup a Topbeats on a Windows EC2 instance and started the service (after setting the template, etc). After all this I navigate to the kibana page and I can't create an index. I've insured that the EC2 Windows Server can connect to theoretically send data to the Elastic store but it doesn't appear to be sending any data.
Is there an easy way to determine not only that the Beats Topbeat Service is started but that it is indeed sending data?
