Getting Started with Beats
Beats are a family of lightweight shippers that send data from edge machines to Elasticsearch. It all started with Packetbeat - you know, for network data. Then expanded to five additional Elastic Beats for: log files, metrics, audit data, windows event logs, and availability monitoring. And there are more than 40 community-created Beats for all kinds of operational data.
In this session, the Beats team will walk you through the latest Beats and their features, including:
- Monitoring your infrastructure with Filebeat and Metricbeat
- Keeping tabs via the Linux audit system and file integrity monitoring with Auditbeat
- Collecting data from Docker and Kubernetes with our improvements for containerization and new modules in Metricbeat and Filebeat
