Fleet and Elastic Agent

Centrally manage your Elastic Agents in Fleet

This content applies to:

Elastic Agent is a single, unified way to add monitoring for logs, metrics, and other types of data to a host. It can also protect hosts from security threats, query data from operating systems, forward data from remote services or hardware, and more. A single agent makes it easier and faster to deploy monitoring across your infrastructure. Each agent has a single policy you can update to add integrations for new data sources, security protections, and more.

Fleet provides a web-based UI to centrally manage your Elastic Agents and their policies.

To learn more, refer to the Fleet and Elastic Agent documentation.
