Elasticsearch

You can use the Elasticsearch plugin to monitor your cluster health and sharding within Elasticsearch. If you can not find this plugin in the /usr/lib/panopta-agent/plugins folder, then your version of the Agent is out of date and you should update it to gain access to this feature.

Agent Configuration

In order to use this plugin, you will have to ensure you can load the /_clusterhealth endpoint locally from your machine. Enter the IP address and port for the /_clusterhealth endpoint into your Agent Config located at /etc/panopta-agent/panopta_agent.cfg file as shown below:

[elasticsearch]
hostname = 127.0.0.1
port = 1313

Control Panel Configuration

To add an ElasticSearch agent resource to your server, read Add FortiMonitor Agent checks. To use the ElasticSearch plugin, first select ElasticSearch from the monitoring catalog.

There are a number of available metrics to choose from.
