Metrics are a key component of our IT systems — from RAM utilization to network traffic flows to available disk space — and it is important to monitor them to keep your systems healthy. In this class, we are going to dive into shipping metric data to Elasticsearch with Metricbeat. You’ll learn how to configure Metricbeat, how to map data and process documents in Elasticsearch, as well as how to handle exceptions along the way. After completing this course, you’ll be able to ship all of your metric data to Elasticsearch.
