apm-server: host: localhost:8200 output: elasticsearch: hosts: ElasticsearchAddress:9200
The output section, like in other Beats, contains settings describing how and where to store the data.
If you are using an X-Pack secured version of Elastic Stack, you need to specify credentials in the config file before you run the commands that set up and start APM Server. For example:
output.elasticsearch: hosts: ["ElasticsearchAddress:9200"] username: "elastic" password: "elastic"
