Grafana Cloud

Elasticsearch integration for Grafana Cloud

Elasticsearch is a search engine based on the Lucene library. It provides a distributed, multitenant-capable full-text search engine with an HTTP web interface and schema-free JSON documents.

This integration enables the agent to send metrics to Grafana Cloud along with a useful default dashboard for visualization.

Use the walkthrough in Grafana Cloud to install the Elasticsearch integration.

Post-install configuration for the Elasticsearch integration

In the agent configuration file, the agent must be pointed to an ElasticSearch server, such as http://elasticsearch:9200.

    enabled: true
    address: http://elasticsearch:9200

Some exporter metrics are disabled by default. See agent configuration reference for more options.

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. For more information, see the [official documentation] (
