How to monitor logstash process


(GG) #1

currently we have couple of logstash process where we go manually run them so sometimes they go down and its very difficult to track and how do we get notified if any individual process goes down

we are working on running logstash as a system service

You can monitor logstash using Kibana if you configuring the monitoring X-Pack (which is now included in the basic license)

yes we have that already, but how to get notified if the process goes down ?

You can get an X-Pack Gold License and that will allow you to create alerts inside Kibana using Watcher.
However, if you cannot afford that I would recommend installing Grafana and querying for the logstash metrics index using it and creating alerts using Grafana :slight_smile:
