Metricbeat Kibana Dashboard for Postgresql

Hi
I have installed metricbeat in a machine with a postgresql service on it, so I enabled the postgresql module of metricbeat.
I loaded the dashboards into kibana and search for a postgresql dashboard and doesn't exist.
Theres a dashboard for this service? in any place?

Thanks in advance

Regards

Rod

Did you see any errors in your terminal when you ran ./metricbeat setup?

No Bargs, Metricbeat doesn't show any errors, I tried with versions 6.6.2, 6.7 and 7.0, and neither of them load a dashboar for postgresql.

There's a place to download and install it manually, or to replicate by hand?

thanks for the reply.

Rod

I think the Beats folks will be able to help you more with that question so I moved this topic to the Beats forum.

thanks Bargs I hope they can hellp me with this

Could you run ./metricbeat setup -e and share the output?

sure

That's the output of the metricbeat loading the dashboards, indeed the dashboards are loaded but the postgresql one is missing

BTW thanks for the reply

cheers

I just realised there is a very simple answer for your question: In 6.6 we did not have dashboards for postgresql: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/6.6/metricbeat-modules.html Actually up to today we don't have any :frowning:

Thanks for the answer

@ruflin are there any plans to add Postgres dashboards? The Postgres metricbeat module is pretty useless as it is...

We definitively want to add dashboards to all our modules. Feel free to open a feature request for this dashboard on Github. Would be also great if you could mention the metrics you are most interested in.

I wonder why it's useless in the current form? I assume you get all the data but have to build the visualisation for the metrics yourself? Or is there more to it?
