Collect All the Things with Beats

The ELK stack is widely used to collect logs with Logstash, analyze and search the data with Elasticsearch, and visualize what is happening in your system. Now there is a new platform for shipping many types of operational data: Beats. It can be used to collect, parse, and ship any type of data.

This talk provides an overview of the Beats platform and dives into gathering system metrics, tapping your wire data, and using real-time file analytics. Finally, we take a look at building custom data shippers to get a complete overview of your infrastructure.
