Watcher Lab — Using Elasticsearch Aggregations in Your Watch

Organizations are storing massive amounts of production data in Elasticsearch. Users often want to be proactive with monitoring their production data and get notified when something changes in their data. This is where Watcher, the alerting and notification feature for the Elastic Stack, comes in.

Watcher Labs is a series of short introductory videos that shows Watcher in action using a variety of simple examples. Video 2 covers:

  • Using Elasticsearch aggregations in your watch
  • Setting up email notifications
  • Using throttling to prevent repeated notification from the same trigger

Watch the first lab in the series to learn about installing Watcher and the basic anatomy of a watch.
