Lightweight shippers for Elasticsearch & Logstash
Beats are lightweight data shippers, written in Go, that you install on your servers to capture all sorts of operational data (think of logs, metrics, or network packet data). The Beats send the operational data to Elasticsearch, either directly or via Logstash, so it can be visualized with Kibana.
If anything goes wrong with our service, we can go back and look at the logs and see what’s going on. Troubleshooting is a lot easier and faster.Edwin Law
