There are two methods to monitor the APM Server binary. Make sure monitoring is enabled on your Elasticsearch cluster, then configure one of these methods to collect APM Server metrics:
- Internal collection - Internal collectors send monitoring data directly to your monitoring cluster.
- Metricbeat collection - Metricbeat collects monitoring data from your APM Server instance and sends it directly to your monitoring cluster.
- Local collection - Local collection sends select monitoring data directly to the standard indices of your monitoring cluster.
