Brewing in Beats: Monitor Logstash with Beats

By Monica Sarbu

Monitor Logstash with Metricbeat

With this PR, Metricbeat gets a new module for monitoring Logstash. The module is in its early stages, more metrics will be added in future PRs.

The module is experimental and it will be released in 6.1.

Metricbeat: Export more Ceph information

Thanks to @elaron, the Ceph module exports OSD tree information, that is important for understanding and monitoring the structure of a Ceph cluster. It collects the weight, status, primary_affinity and other useful info of each OSD node.
