I am wondering how quick can I get the message that the remote system is down or shutting down.
I am using 6.2.2 for all versions of ELK and Beats.
Another question I have one system that is always "on" state (not down or shut off).
I see the heartbeat says that the system was down at certain time and up at certain time.
heartbeat.monitors: - type: icmp # monitor type `icmp` (requires root) uses ICMP Echo Request to ping # configured hosts # Configure task schedule using cron-like syntax schedule: '*/5 * * * * * *' # exactly every 5 seconds like 10:00:00, 10:00:05, ... # List of hosts to ping hosts: ["localhost:9200", "Q000B43C", "google.com"] # Configure IP protocol types to ping on if hostnames are configured. # Ping all resolvable IPs if `mode` is `all`, or only one IP if `mode` is `any`. ipv4: true ipv6: true mode: any # Total running time per ping test. timeout: 1s # Waiting duration until another ICMP Echo Request is emitted. wait: 1s
Another question is it possible to create alert email based on when the system is down or application is down? Any sample?
