Elasticsearch ingest_pipeline metricsetedit

This functionality is in beta and is subject to change. The design and code is less mature than official GA features and is being provided as-is with no warranties. Beta features are not subject to the support SLA of official GA features.

This is the ingest_pipeline metricset of the module elasticsearch.

Collects metrics on ingest pipeline executions, with processor-level granularity.

Processor-level metrics samplingedit

Processor-level metrics can produce a high volume of data, so the default behavior is to collect those metrics less frequently than the period for pipeline-level metrics, by applying a sampling strategy. By default, the processor-level metrics will be collected during 25% of the time. This can be configured with the ingest.processor_sample_rate setting:

Configuration exampleedit

- module: elasticsearch
  period: 10s
    - ingest
  ingest.processor_sample_rate: 0.1 # decrease to 10% of fetches

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.
