Cluster Health Alert Monitors


I would like to create Monitors that triggers on Cluster Health stats, however I cannot find any information on which index this information is stored in in order to populate an index based DSL query for the monitor.

As far as I can tell, Cluster Health information is only available from the _cluster api. How can I go about accomplishing this?

Thanks in advance!


Hi @shah,

We currently do not support monitoring cluster health stats through the API directly. The current workaround would be you having a process periodically ingest the current cluster health stats into Elasticsearch and monitoring that index.

I have created an issue to track this so we can support this directly from Alerting:

@dbbaughe thanks for the update and the workaround suggestion, we were thinking of implementing something inline with the workaround you suggested.
