Getting Started With Heartbeat

To get started with your own Heartbeat setup, install and configure these related products:

  • Elasticsearch for storing and indexing the data.
  • Kibana for the UI.
  • Logstash (optional) for parsing and enhancing the data.

See Getting started with the Elastic Stack for more information about installing these products.

You can skip having to install Elasticsearch and Kibana by using our hosted Elasticsearch Service on Elastic Cloud. The Elasticsearch Service is available on both AWS and GCP. Try out the Elasticsearch Service for free.

After installing the Elastic Stack, read the following topics to learn how to install, configure, and run Heartbeat. Upgrading to a new version of Heartbeat? Start by reading the Beats upgrade documentation.
