Monitoring your network traffic is critical to gaining observability and securing your environment — ensuring high levels of performance and security. Packetbeat is a lightweight network packet analyzer that sends data from your hosts and containers to Logstash or Elasticsearch.
Network protocols like HTTP let you keep a pulse on application latency and errors, response times, SLA performance, user access patterns and trends, and more.
Packetbeat enables you to access this data to understand how traffic is flowing through your network. It’s totally passive, has zero latency overhead, and doesn’t interfere with your infrastructure. Explore the live demo.
Packetbeat supports Elastic Common Schema (ECS) and is part of the Elastic Stack — meaning it works seamlessly with Logstash, Elasticsearch, and Kibana. Whether you want to transform or enrich your network data with Logstash, fiddle with some analytics in Elasticsearch, or review data in Kibana on a dashboard or in Elastic Security, Packetbeat makes it easy.
