Reading this document, I'm testing stack monitoring using metricbeat not Legacy collection method.
In this stack monitoring document, it says:
1.Enable the collection of monitoring data.
trueon the production cluster. By default, it is is disabled (
But I don't understand why this parameter needs to be set to true, because metricbeat can access to Elasticsearch(9200 port) API to collect its metric data whether this parameter is true of false. In other words, I don't want collect any metric data in this (production) cluster but want to store them in the monitoring cluster.
Also with regard to kibana monitoring, I can use metricbeat to collect metrics. So this parameter can be false.
Anyone knows this is just a document bug, or there is some reason we should change this parameter true?
