Fleet in Kibana enables you to manage Elastic Agent installations in standalone or Fleet mode.
Standalone mode requires you to manually configure and manage the agent locally. It is recommended for advanced users only.
Fleet mode offers several advantages:
- A central place to configure and monitor your Elastic Agents.
- Ability to trigger Elastic Agent binary and policy upgrades remotely.
- An overview of the data ingest in your Elasticsearch cluster.
To get started with Fleet, refer to the Fleet docs.
