Note: Running in Windows Server 2012
I have a couple of questions about the
Metricbeat service running under
- Can modules (for example
MSSQL) be activated like the standalone version of Metricbeat?
- How do I load the dashboards in Kibana? Should I modify the file
C:\Program Files\Elastic-Agent\data\install\metricbeat-7.9.2-windows-x86_64\metricbeat.ymlto add the connection information and be able to run command
- After installing
Elastic-AgentI don't see that an index like
metricbeat-7.9.2-xhas been created in Elasticsearch. Apparently this
Metricbeatsends data only to index
.ds-metrics-elastic.agent.metricbeat-default. I assume that the preconfigured dashboards that the
Metricbeatinstallation incorporates will not have data to show, since it reads from the index
metricbeat-7.9.2-xthat is not being created?
- If this
Metricbeatdoes not allow me (due to the previous questions) to make use of the dashboards and the
MSSQLdata I want to monitor, can I install a standalone version of
Metricbeaton the same machine where
Elastic-Agentis running, without both
Metricbeatprocesses coming into conflict?
Note: I acknowledge that this topic is about beats and I considered putting it in the Beats section, but since these are specific questions about beasts running under Elastic-Agent, I think it makes more sense to post it in this section. Please forgive me if I'm wrong.
