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.

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.

  # 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"]

  # Exporter-specific configuration options

  # HTTP API address of an Elasticsearch node.

  # 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: <string> ]

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

  # Export stats for settings of all indices of the cluster.
