Grafana Alloy is the new name for our distribution of the OTel collector. Grafana Agent has been deprecated and is in Long-Term Support (LTS) through October 31, 2025. Grafana Agent will reach an End-of-Life (EOL) on November 1, 2025. Read more about why we recommend migrating to Grafana Alloy.

Important: This documentation is about an older version. It's relevant only to the release noted, many of the features and functions have been updated or replaced. Please view the current version.

The elasticsearch_exporter_config block configures the elasticsearch_exporter integration, which is an embedded version of elasticsearch_exporter. This allows for the collection of metrics from ElasticSearch servers.

Note that currently, an Agent can only collect metrics from a single ElasticSearch server. However, the exporter is able to collect the metrics from all nodes through that server configured.

We strongly recommend that you configure a separate user for the Agent, and give it only the strictly mandatory security privileges necessary for monitoring your node, as per the official documentation.

Full reference of options:

  # Enables the elasticsearch_exporter integration, allowing the Agent to automatically
  # collect system metrics from the configured ElasticSearch server address
  [enabled: <boolean> | default = false]

  # Sets an explicit value for the instance label when the integration is
  # self-scraped. Overrides inferred values.
  # The default value for this integration is inferred from the hostname portion
  # of address.
  [instance: <string>]

  # Automatically collect metrics from this integration. If disabled,
  # the elasticsearch_exporter integration will be run but not scraped and thus not
  # remote-written. Metrics for the integration will be exposed at
  # /integrations/elasticsearch_exporter/metrics and can be scraped by an external
  # process.
  [scrape_integration: <boolean> | default = <integrations_config.scrape_integrations>]

  # How often should the metrics be collected? Defaults to
  [scrape_interval: <duration> | default = <global_config.scrape_interval>]

  # The timeout before considering the scrape a failure. Defaults to
  [scrape_timeout: <duration> | default = <global_config.scrape_timeout>]

  # Allows for relabeling labels on the target.
    [- <relabel_config> ... ]

  # Relabel metrics coming from the integration, allowing to drop series
  # from the integration that you don't care about.
    [ - <relabel_config> ... ]

  # How frequent to truncate the WAL for this integration.
  [wal_truncate_frequency: <duration> | default = "60m"]

  # Monitor the exporter itself and include those metrics in the results.
  [include_exporter_metrics: <bool> | default = false]

  # Exporter-specific configuration options

  # HTTP API address of an Elasticsearch node.

  # Timeout for trying to get stats from Elasticsearch.
  [ timeout: <duration> | default = "5s" ]

  # Export stats for all nodes in the cluster. If used, this flag will override the flag `node`.
  [ all: <boolean> ]

  # Node's name of which metrics should be exposed.
  [ node: <boolean> ]

  # Export stats for indices in the cluster.
  [ indices: <boolean> ]

  # Export stats for settings of all indices of the cluster.
  [ indices_settings: <boolean> ]

  # Export stats for cluster settings.

  # Export stats for shards in the cluster (implies indices).
