How to monitor ELASTICSEARCH databases


What is Elasticsearch?

Elasticsearch is a software using Lucene for indexing and searching data. It provides a distributed search engine written in Java and distributed under the Elastic license.

Elasticsearch monitoring

ServicePilot monitors an Elasticsearch cluster by querying the Elasticserarch API URL from a ServicePilot Agent. Depending on access to this URL, the ServicePilot Agent might need to be installed on the same machine as Elasticsearch.

Monitoring statistics collected and analysed include:

  • Cluster information: Status, Nodes, Shards, Tasks, Fetches
  • Per node usage: Name, IP, role, Heap, RAM ,CPU and disk usage


It is necessary to install the ServicePilot System agent directly on the target server.

  • ServicePilot requirements
    • ServicePilot System Agent installed and configured on the target server.


Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place.

Follow the documentation to add a resource to ServicePilot.
