ECE Monitoring


We have an ECE installation hosting a couple of elastic clusters. We have deployed a cluster dedicated to monitoring and that was working well until the monitoring cluster went down.
So now the questions I have are: How do I monitor my monitoring cluster? self-monitoring with watchers in place to warn of potential problems? Monitoring it from one of the other clusters (so basically they monitor one another)? Else? Is there a best practice approach for this case?

Thanks for your help

Hi @NidOf3lp

This is a surprisingly uncommonly asked question!

I asked our support ops team what their recommendation was based on their usage and they suggested:

  • Self monitor, and
  • Use a 3rd party "heartbeat" service like StatusCake do uptime pings
