Metricbeat x-pack monitoring


(Mario Fimiani) #1

Which is the configuration to monitor via kibana (x-pack on board with elk 6.2.4),
the metricbeat status ?

We don't have the monitoring beat area with this configuration (it's seems to be some conflict between the elasticsearch configuration and x-pack monitoring) :

#-------------------------- Elasticsearch output -------------------------------
output.elasticsearch:
enabled: true
hosts: ["localhost:9200"]
protocol: "http"
username: "metricbeat_writer"
password: "*******"

....

#============================== Xpack Monitoring ===============================
xpack.monitoring.enabled: true
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch:

If you don't configure the xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch the values from the output will be taken. If you want to send it to a different host, you have to configure it.

I'm not sure I understood if it's working on your end or not.

My miss understanidng was for comment :smile:

Now it's work, I need to add the same configuration for output and monitoring :

#-------------------------- Elasticsearch output -------------------------------
output.elasticsearch:

Array of hosts to connect to.

hosts: ["10.76.51.14:9200"]

Optional protocol and basic auth credentials.

protocol: "http"
username: "***"
password: "***"

#============================== Xpack Monitoring ===============================

xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.url: ["http://10.76.51.14:9200"]
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.username: "***"
xpack.monitoring.elasticsearch.password: "***"
