We first posted about monitoring Kafka with Filebeat in 2016. Since the 6.5 release, the Beats team has been supporting a Kafka module. This module automates much of the work involved in monitoring a Kafka cluster. In this blog post, we'll focus on collecting logs and metric data with the Kafka modules in Filebeat and Metricbeat. We'll be ingesting that data into a cluster hosted on the Elasticsearch Service, and we'll explore the Kibana dashboards provided by the Beats modules.

With the release of the Elastic Stack 6.8 and 7.1, we’ve made a number of Elasticsearch security features more widely available to everyone by making them free in the default distribution. We’re really excited to share this, but one of the new challenges now is to update all of our documentation and guidance on how to secure the Elastic Stack. Gone are the days of relying on just a proxy server in front of the Stack to secure it!
