The Beats Family
All kinds of shippers for all kinds of data.
Ship from the Source.
Plain and Simple.
Beats are great for gathering data. They sit on your servers and centralize data in Elasticsearch. And if you want more processing muscle, Beats can also ship to Logstash for transformation and parsing.
Monitor with Your Metadata
Docker? Kubernetes? We play well with both so you can monitor your containers with ease. Filebeat and Metricbeat gather your containers' logs and metrics and amend each with essential metadata before shipping them to the Elastic Stack. Grab your baton, orchestration just got simpler.
Missing a Beat? Don’t.
Build Your Own & Share It.
The cornerstone of every open source Beat is libbeat, the common library for forwarding data. Have a specialized protocol you need to monitor? Build it. We provide you the building blocks you need. And our list of community Beats keeps growing.
