Kibana status metricsetedit

This functionality is experimental and may be changed or removed completely in a future release. Elastic will take a best effort approach to fix any issues, but experimental features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

This is the status metricset of the Kibana module. This status endpoint is available in 6.0 by default and can be enabled in Kibana >= 5.4 with the config option status.v6ApiFormat: true.

The intention of the Kibana module is to have a minimal data set that works across Kibana versions.


For a description of each field in the metricset, see the exported fields section.

Here is an example document generated by this metricset:
