comment Collectd --> Elasticsearch if remote-host can't connect to central elasticsearch
Fair enough. It's hard to accurately detect someone's tone on the information superhighway, but I wasn't liking whatever it was. That combined with the lack of provided information or extensive effort probably clouded my ability to read clearly what he was asking

@GregL then this should not have the words logstash or collectd in it, and should instead be: "How can I connect to a remote host behind a firewall whose rule are set to disallow the connection?" :/

Finally, whether the log stash is remote or with ES is irrelevant. 95% of the time it will be with ES. But who cares? Thats why networks exist. If the latency is reasonable and the bandwidth is sufficient, it can be timbuktu

collectd sends a udp stream to the logstash collector in a binary format as described above, and its encrypted as well

Sorry to be rude but if you are using cron that widely you probably should be embracing more encapsulation in your life :) polling is inefficient, we all know that instinctively, but what it does is it has an agent on the collectd side, namely ... collectd

Thats how the data gets serialized. As for cron, NO. This is not 1995.

With respect, you ought to try reading instead asking. You may not want the data flow to be encapsulated, but most of us who do this for a living understand that encapsulation is your friend, but if you insist on knowing, collectd uses something called protocol buffers that it relabels as its "binary protocol" github.com/logstash-plugins/logstash-codec-collectd/blob/master/…

I take it that you did not run the docker compose I sent to you or you are still running it. That will answer your question better than anyone could because you will see it working live. I posted an edited answer right above I dont know the stnax for collectd so you will need to add a filter if you ont want the other daata coming there.

That's what logstash is for :) It collects logs with input , filters them wiht filer and sends them to WHERE EVER, INCLUDING es with output
