Monitoring Alerts

alerting

(Michael Clarke) #1

The X-Pack doco makes mention of monitoring alerts raised by Watcher, but I'm struggling to find any more doco on it.

Is it just accomplished through the Watcher alert logging function?

Is there a document describing the format of the JSON records produced? And which index they are stored in?

Hey,

those alerts are shown in the kibana UI by indexing into another index, when an alert occurs.
You can query the .watches index to list all watches to find those, if you want.

Hope this helps.

Thanks.

I'm looking at a tool to put alerts directly into indexes in elasticsearch
and I was looking to see if there were any standard fields on the x-type
alerts I could be compatible with, but I guess it just ends up with a
message and timestamp.
