Kibana Stack Monitoring

Hello,

I cannot monitor the health of a production cluster in the monitoring cluster (https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/7.4/monitoring-overview.html).
My doubt is if this is a free functionality or I have to subscribe to platinum subscritpion or similar.

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Aitor,

Using a monitoring cluster requires a Gold license. There is a note about this in the second paragraph here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/7.4/monitoring-production.html

You can request more information on a Gold license from https://elastic.co/subscriptions.

Thanks a lot for your answer nickpeihl!

Best regards,
Aitor

Hello,

Is there a minimum number of nodes requirement in the monitoring cluster? Or can be a 1 node cluster¿?
And, the gold suscription does it have to be activated in both clusters, only in the monitoring one or only in the production one? What's the minimum requeriment?

Thanks in advance!
Aitor
