Infrastructure monitoring


Infrastructure monitoringedit

The Infrastructure app in Kibana enables you to visualize infrastructure metrics to help diagnose problematic spikes, identify high resource utilization, automatically discover and track pods, and unify your metrics with logs and APM data in Elasticsearch.

Using Elastic Agent integrations, you can ingest and analyze metrics from servers, Docker containers, Kubernetes orchestrations, explore and analyze application telemetry, and more.

To access the Infrastructure app from the main Kibana menu, go to Observability → Infrastructure. The Infrastructure app provides a few different views of your data.
