Using 5.5 ELK. Trying to achieve the x-pack monitoring dashboard (say https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/x-pack/current/monitoring-details.html) thru APIs.
This is to be used as a smoke test after the installation of ELK.
Had the following questions.
- Are there any APIs, which can be used say either thru REST or python?
- If the xpack is not installed, is there any means of achieving the monitoring? (ie. if the components have come up fine after the installation)
Got to know there is python APIs for elasticsearch ( http://elasticsearch-py.readthedocs.io/en/master/api.html), Is there APIs to do the above status/stats check?
