The documentation regarding extending Metric beat is quite confusion. Both looks like the same:
- Extend Metricbeat directly
- Create your own Beat and use Metricbeat as a library
The situation is, I want to get metrics from openvpn, and i am using metric beat for system and network modules.
So what would be the better option for openvpn,
- Creating a new metric set
- Creating a new beat and use metricbeat as a libraray
Any suggestions and thoughts would be appreciated!
