osquery vs Ossec: What are the differences?

Developers describe osquery as "Expose the operating system as a relational database (by Facebook)". osquery exposes an operating system as a high-performance relational database. This allows you to write SQL-based queries to explore operating system data. With osquery, SQL tables represent abstract concepts such as running processes, loaded kernel modules, open network connections, browser plugins, hardware events or file hashes. On the other hand, Ossec is detailed as "A Host-based Intrusion Detection System". It is a free, open-source host-based intrusion detection system. It performs log analysis, integrity checking, registry monitoring, rootkit detection, time-based alerting, and active response.

    It is the acronym for three open source projects: Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Elasticsearch is a search and analytics engine. Logstash is a server‑side data processing pipeline that ingests data from multiple sources simultaneously, transforms it, and then sends it to a "stash" like Elasticsearch. Kibana lets users visualize data with charts and graphs in Elasticsearch.
    Prometheus
