Elastic APM


(sunil) #1

I have installed ELK 6.2 in my windows based OS. I am mainly interested on elastic APM. Would want to know whether the performers Matrix can be pulled from Java based application. Meaning can I install an agent on java based applications to monitor the performance .

Also please let me know is x-pack mandatory to use APM.

Hi and thanks for checking out Elastic APM!

At the moment, we do not offer an official Java agent, but I have just started working one. However, it will take some time before it gets released.

Could you tell me a bit more about your application?

  • Which Java version are you using?
  • Which Application Server and version are you using?
  • Used frameworks
  • How many different (micro)services do you operate?
  • Which protocols are used for inter-service-communication?
  • Which frameworks are used for inter-service-communication?

Regarding X-Pack, all the agents, the APM server and the Kibana dashboards are open source. There also is a dedicated APM Kibana plugin which is part of X-Pack basic which means its free.
