Monitoring events logging to ELK

Currently only system logs (BIP, ...) are sent over ELK configuration to Logstash agent.
We would like to write also monitoring events directly to Logstash agent.
Currently, ACE supports logging monitoring events only via MQ/MQTT to topic.

    Thank you for taking the time to raise this RFE. We are always interested in looking at new publication formats and protocols - hence our investment in the push of log entries to ELK, which we're pleased to hear you have found helpful. We agree with the concept of sending monitoring events to ELK and this is something we are considering for a future release. We also may well introduce a new wire format for the events at the same time for better compatability with other systems (eg perhaps JSON rather than the XML common business event format used across MQ) so we would be interested in any community opinions on how the events should be styled. Status of the RFE is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
