Visualize if process is running?


(Tom Doherty) #1

Hi

I'm struggling to get kibana to visualize if a process is running. I have metricbeat running and see field system.process.name which seems to fit the bill but I dont know how I can display if it's running at present

Any clues?

Thanks

Hello,

Metricbeat comes with a set of dashboards where you can filter on system.process.name. This is how you configure and load dashboards:
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-configuration.html
and this is how you load dashboards:
https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/view-kibana-dashboards.html

Now if you pick your particular time in your timepicker - you can look at your data.

You can definitely build your visualizations and dashboards. Above steps hopefully make it easier for you to get started.

Thanks,
Bhavya

Hi Bhavya

I have used the Metricbeat dashboards but I would like to just display a YES or a NO in a custom visualisation if a specified process is running. Is this possible?

Thank you
