IMPORTANT: No additional bug fixes or documentation updates will be released for this version. For the latest information, see the current release documentation.
This documentation refers to monitoring the standalone (legacy) APM Server. This method of running APM Server will be deprecated and removed in a future release. Please consider upgrading to Fleet and the APM integration.
You can use the Elastic Stack monitoring features to gain insight into the health of APM Server.
To monitor APM Server, make sure monitoring is enabled on your Elasticsearch cluster, then configure the method used to collect APM Server metrics. You can use one of following methods:
- Internal collection - Internal collectors send monitoring data directly to your monitoring cluster.
- Metricbeat collection - Metricbeat collects monitoring data from your APM Server instance and sends it directly to your monitoring cluster.
