API End-point Monitoring

How to monitor the API end-points. Have checked the Heartbeat link: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/heartbeat/current/index.html.

Looks to be it is still in Beta. So wanted to know what is the standard way of monitoring the API end points and send an email/alert/notification if is down.

Checking for an endpoint being up is clearly the domain of heartbeat. This meta issue contains the roadmap to GA.

You can combine heartbeat e.g. with Logstash (e.g. email output) or X-Pack Alerting to send some notifications.

Have you tried heartbeat yet? It would be interesting to learn if you hit any limitations, which might be improved upon before GA.

Thanks Steffen. We are testing it and will let you know in case if we hit any limitation.
