Configuration Examplesedit

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 section contains manifests that illustrate common use cases, and can be your starting point in exploring Elastic Agent deployed with ECK. These manifests are self-contained and work out-of-the-box on any non-secured Kubernetes cluster. They all contain a three-node Elasticsearch cluster and a single Kibana instance. Add the corresponding integration package to Kibana to install the dashboards, visualizations and other assets for each of these examples as described in the Elastic Agent documentation.

The examples in this section are for illustration purposes only and should not be considered to be production-ready. Some of these examples use the node.store.allow_mmap: false setting which has performance implications and should be tuned for production workloads, as described in Virtual memory.

System integrationedit

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/elastic/cloud-on-k8s/1.5/config/recipes/elastic-agent/system-integration.yaml

Deploys Elastic Agent as a DaemonSet in standalone mode with system integration enabled. Collects syslog logs, auth logs and system metrics (for CPU, I/O, filesystem, memory, network, process and others).

Kubernetes integrationedit

kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/elastic/cloud-on-k8s/1.5/config/recipes/elastic-agent/kubernetes-integration.yaml

Deploys Elastic Agent as a DaemonSet in standalone mode with Kubernetes integration enabled. Collects API server, Container, Event, Node, Pod, Volume and system metrics.
