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
integrations: elasticsearch_exporter: 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] (https://github.com/prometheus-community/elasticsearch_exporter#elasticsearch-7x-security-privileges).
