Dashboards for zookeeper, elasticsearch

Hi, I am monitoring elasticsearch and zookeeper using metricbeat. But I didnt find the dashboards are coming along with metricbeat. May I know if I can populate/import the dashboards from somewhere?

Did you encounter any errors when setting up the metricbeat from step 4 here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-installation-configuration.html#setup-assets. This step is the one that creates dashboards within Kibana. If any errors occur, a configuration from step 2 may be incorrect.

Sorry, I overlooked the directory. Metricbeat-zookeeper-overview.json is present in metricbeat kibana dashboards.

But I dont find the elasticsearch dashboard in metricbeat-7.9.1-linux-x86_64/kibana/7/dashboard directory.

I believe there are no dashboards for Elasticsearch as it's recommended to use stack monitoring instead. There is a module for metricbeat for Elasticsearch here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-module-elasticsearch.html.

I came across another thread with similar discussion here: Kibana dashboard for ES cluster monitoring.

I can move the thread to Beats to get a more precise / formal answer if you wish.

Thanks @mikecote, I have configured the elasticsearch module in the metricbeat configuration and I am able to see the elasticsearch metrics in Kibana's Discovery Page.

I think Stack monitoring is only to monitor the current ELK stack. But I want to monitor other elasticsearch nodes (not part of ELK stack). May I know if there is any way to view them in stack monitoring?

I have disabled the elasticsearch module and enabled elasticsearch-xpack module. Now I am able to see the cluster in Stack Monitoring page.
Thanks for helping me @mikecote.
