ELK stack and monitoring/alerting

I am new to ELK stack. I guess, I understand ELK can be used for log
management. You can view the details on dash board using kibana etc.

however, one question, can we have an alerting system as an extension of
ELK stack ?

Only using 3rd party tools, you can get logstash to send data to
nagios/email/etc.

There is currently nothing within ES that lets you generate alerts out.

As Mark says, there's nothing built in. Approaches that I've read about for
bolting alerting onto ELK:

  1. Use Logstash to output to some other alerting pipeline, such as: email,
    Nagios, Riemann.
  2. Write a cron job / scheduled task to run Elasticsearch queries
    periodically and take action based on the results. This is not part of
    Logstash or Kibana; you need to write it yourself. I believe the MozDef
    project has some code to do this: https://github.com/jeffbryner/MozDef.
  3. Write your own indexer that makes use of Elasticsearch percolators.
    Percolators allow you to match indexed queries against new indexed
    documents, which is kind of like alerting. Again, you'd need to write it
    yourself.

You can do some simple alert in kibana. I'd try to use HTML5 notification
API to show alert on my big screen.
