Beats

The Beats family of tools are utilities for reading metric and log data from a source and forwarding it to either Logstash or Elasticsearch. Their scope can vary: whilst Winlogbeat exclusively deals with the Windows Event Log Metricbeat ships modules for a range of applications.

libbeat

libbeat provides a Golang base for new beats that follow the semantics of those shipped in the Elastic distribution.
