The Observability Overview page contains a wide variety of charts displaying analytics relating to the components that help you make your systems observable: logs, metrics, APM, and uptime data.
Additionally, the alerts chart keeps you informed of any issues that you may need to resolve quickly.
Services and transactionsedit
The APM chart displays the total number of services running within your environment and the total number of transactions per minute that were captured by the Elastic APM agent instrumenting those services.
To drill-down and view this APM data in the APM app, click View in app.
The Logs chart helps you to detect and inspect possible log anomalies across each of your ingested log sources. The visualization helps you determine if the log rate is outside of your expected bounds, and therefore could be considered anomalous. Any drop in the log rate could suggest a system has stopped responding, or a spike could denote a DDos attack.
To drill-down and view these logs in the Logs app, click View in app.
The Metrics chart provides you with a quick glance of the performance metrics aggregated on all of your running hosts. The metrics help you to evaluate the efficiency of hosts and determine whether there is any impact of resource consumption for your end-users.
CPU usage, memory usage, and disk used metrics enable you to identify possible memory leaks, and whether disk resources need to be added or redistributed. Inbound and outbound traffic metrics provide you with a visualization of any possible spikes to help determine whether any hosts are choking your network.
To drill-down and view these performance metrics in the Metrics app, click View in app.
To help you react quickly to availability issues before they affect your users, the Uptime
chart provides you with a snapshot of the overall availability of your hosts, network devices, or third-party
services. Based on the last check reported by Heartbeat, you can view the total number of detected monitors,
along with the number of monitors in an

To help keep you aware of potential issues in your environments, the Alerts feed provides a snapshot of the alerts occurring within the specified time frame. Displayed are the alert types, your specified tags, and the number of instances of each alert within that time frame.
To create or edit alerts, click Manage alerts.
