Infrastructure monitoring

Monitor metrics from your servers, Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus, and other services and applications.

Elastic Observability allows you to visualize infrastructure metrics to help diagnose problematic spikes, identify high resource utilization, automatically discover and track pods, and unify your metrics with logs and APM data.

Using Elastic Agent integrations, you can ingest and analyze metrics from servers, Docker containers, Kubernetes orchestrations, explore and analyze application telemetry, and more.

By default, the Infrastructure UI displays metrics from Elasticsearch indices that match the metrics-* and metricbeat-* index patterns. To learn how to change this behavior, refer to Configure settings.
