How it works

The plugin connects to the ElasticSearch server and uses the node stats call to fetch statistics about the server.

These statistics include information about the processes, threads, network and JVM. These statistics are gathered by default and no additional configuration is required. Just provide the connection details and the plugin is ready to go.

The minimal supported version of ElasticSearch is 0.90.


The plugin needs to be installed together with a CoScale agent, instructions on how to install the CoScale agent can be found here. If you want to monitor Elasticsearch inside Docker containers using CoScale, check out the instructions here.


Active checks

This plugin can be configured to execute a URI query on your ElasticSearch. This active monitoring allows us to calculate the uptime of the service and the response time of the query.

A valid URI query (eg. http://localhost:9200/twitter/tweet/_search?q=user:kimchy) should be provided.
