Amazon Elasticsearch Service Monitoring Integration

Elasticsearch as a service from AWS makes it easy to deploy and operate Elasticsearch for log analytics, data search and more. By monitoring Amazon ES with Site24x7 you can oversee the operational aspects like performance optimization.

Setup and configuration

  • If you haven't done it already, enable access to your AWS resource by creating Site24x7 as an IAM user or by creating a cross-account IAM role between your account and Site24x7's AWS account. Learn more.
  • Next, In the Integrate AWS Account page, please make sure the Elasticsearch checkbox is selected in the Services to be discovered field. Learn more.

Policies and permissions

Please make sure the following read level actions are present in the IAM policy assigned to Site24x7 entity. Learn more.

  • "es:DescribeElasticsearchDomain",
  • "es:ListDomainNames",
  • "es:ListTags",
  • "logs:DescribeLogStreams",
  • "logs:GetLogEvents",
  • "es:DescribePackages"

Polling frequency

Site24x7 queries the AWS service level APIs and CloudWatch APIs as per the poll frequency set (1 minute to a day), to collect performance metrics. Learn more.

Yellow- Indicates that the primary shards for all indices are allocated to nodes in a cluster, but the replica shards for at least one index are not.

Red- Indicates that the primary and replica shards of at least one index are not allocated to nodes in a cluster.

Instance metrics

Attribute Description Unit Statistic
Indexing Latency The average time, in milliseconds, that it takes a shard to complete an indexing operation.

Applicable as an Elasticsearch node metric.

Milliseconds Average
Indexing Rate The number of indexing operations per minute. A single call to the _bulk API that adds two documents and updates two counts as four operations, which might be spread across one or more nodes. If that index has one or more replicas, other nodes in the cluster also record a total of four indexing operations. Document deletions do not count towards this metric.

Applicable as an Elasticsearch node metric.

Ops/min Average
Search Latency The average time, in milliseconds, that it takes a shard on a data node to complete a search operation.

Applicable as an Elasticsearch node metric.

Milliseconds Average
Search Rate The total number of search requests per minute for all shards on a data node. A single call to the _search API might return results from many different shards. If five of these shards are on one node, the node would report 5 for this metric, even though the client only made one request.
