APM for monitoring ELK applications

Hi Community,

Just started APM from today. Running ELK version 7.17 , installed APM also
can we use APM for monitoring ELK applications.

Hi @Aniket_Pant
Are you referring to the APM Python agent? Where have you installed it and what information are you looking for that's not covered in the documentation: APM Python Agent Reference [6.x] | Elastic

Hi @Emily_Stolfo

I want to ask can we monitor elk application with APM

ELK is Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana. Are you asking if you can monitor those pieces of software with APM? Or do you mean something different when you say "ELK applications"?

Hi @basepi ,

Why i want to use APM for observing ELK Applications ?

  1. when kibana communicate to Elasticsearch , some time we get latency some time kibana
    take long time for loading the dashboards in that case we need to APM

  2. Similarly with logstash how it interact with elasticsearch.

Metricbeat is there for monitoring those application but i am just curious to know can we APM for getting insightful information from ELK applications.

Can it be possible?

No, that's not possible at this stage.

Hi @warkolm ,

This is the documentation https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/master/kibana-debugging.html
and there is a section of apm but i don't know how to use it
