Hi Team, i've configured signoz internally for monitoring, But now the requirement is to have network monitoring setup for our appliction. Earlier we are using ELK setup with packetbeat where we are capturing http headers and other netwrk related logs. Need to know how we can do this here in the signoz.

Though I haven’t worked with packetbeat, to get started you can still use packetbeat https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/packetbeat/current/configuring-output.html and use some of the output plugins.

If you use console output and your packetbeat is running in k8s then the opentelemtery filelog receiver will scrape those logs. Or you can use the logstash plugin and then forward from logstash to SigNoz. https://signoz.io/docs/userguide/logstash_to_signoz/

The above solution will get you up and running,
But I would like to understand more about the architecture and what network monitoring means in your system i.e what integrations do you use with packetbeat and how are you using it.
