Elastic has made enabling X-Pack monitoring on a cluster very intuitive. But what about when your cluster is in production? A cluster that monitors itself is not very useful when there is a problem with it. In order to properly monitor a cluster in production, you need to use a dedicated monitoring cluster that you can use to remotely monitor all of your other elasticsearch clusters. That way, when something is wrong, you can still get the information you need to troubleshoot from the monitoring cluster. This learning activity gives you the opportunity to enable and configure X-Pack Monitoring on two clusters. The first is a dedicated monitoring cluster that you will need to configure so that it monitors the second, a production Elasticsearch cluster.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
