Is the Output module to ElasticSearch available/will be available in the community edition?
When I last checked it was a feature of the commerical edition only.
I have been a nxlog champion for years now and have been forwarding to logstash. However with Elasticsearch ingest nodes, there is one extra redundent step now.
This will tip the scale to moving off into native beats/rsyslog if there are no plans to make this available.
