Elasticsearch Monitoring Metricsedit

You can drill down into the status of your Elasticsearch cluster in Kibana by clicking the Overview, Nodes, and Indices links on the Monitoring page.

See also Monitoring Elasticsearch.

Cluster Overviewedit

To view the key metrics that indicate the overall health of an Elasticsearch cluster, click Overview in the Elasticsearch section. Anything that needs your attention is highlighted in yellow or red.

Tip

Conditions that require your attention are listed at the top of the Clusters page. You can also set up watches to alert you when the status of your cluster changes. To learn how, see Watch Your Cluster Health.

The panel at the top shows the current cluster statistics, the charts show the search and indexing performance over time, and the table at the bottom shows information about any shards that are being recovered.

To view advanced node metrics, click the Advanced tab for a node. The Advanced tab shows additional metrics, such as memory and garbage collection statistics reported by the selected Elasticsearch node.

Elasticsearch Node Advanced

You can use the advanced node view to diagnose issues that generally involve more advanced knowledge of Elasticsearch, such as poor garbage collection performance.

Indicesedit

To view index metrics, click Indices. The Indices section shows the same overall index and search metrics as the Overview and a table of your indices.

Elasticsearch Indices
Index Overviewedit

From the Indices listing, you can view data for a particular index. To drill down into the data for a particular index, click its name in the Indices table.

To view advanced index metrics, click the Advanced tab for an index. The Advanced tab shows additional metrics, such as memory statistics reported about the Elasticsearch index. If the index has more than one shard, then its shards might live on more than one node.

Elasticsearch Index Advanced

The Advanced index view can be used to diagnose issues that generally involve more advanced knowledge of Elasticsearch, such as wasteful index memory usage.
