Elasticsearch shard metricsetedit

The shard metricset interrogates the Cluster State API endpoint to fetch information about all shards.

This is a default metricset. If the host module is unconfigured, this metricset is enabled by default.


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

Here is an example document generated by this metricset:
