Watch for no metricbeats data on client

I've set up metricbeats on some key infrastructure and logging it all in elastic where I'm running ML to look for anomalies. However if a box goes offline, where it sends no data I don't beleive the watch will trigger anything but the box being dead is one of the more serious alerts I want to get. Has anyone got any ideas on now I can monitor for this?

A simple and straightforward approach: set up a watch for each monitorized machine, look for the messages in the last n minutes and evaluate if the total is zero.

For a more complicated and escalable solution, check the watcher examples from the official repository:
