Kibana moduleedit

The kibana module collects metrics about Kibana.


The kibana module works with Kibana 6.7.0 and later.

Usage for Stack Monitoringedit

The kibana module can be used to collect metrics shown in our Elastic Stack monitoring features UI in Kibana. To enable this usage, set xpack.enabled: true and remove any metricsets from the module’s configuration. Alternatively, run metricbeat modules disable kibana and metricbeat modules enable kibana-xpack.

Example configurationedit

- module: kibana
  metricsets: ["status"]
  period: 10s
  hosts: ["localhost:5601"]
  basepath: ""
  enabled: true

  # Set to true to send data collected by module to X-Pack
  # Monitoring instead of metricbeat-* indices.
  #xpack.enabled: false

This module supports TLS connections when using ssl config field, as described in SSL. It also supports the options described in Standard HTTP config options.
