Sending Icinga2 Performance metrics directly to Elasticsearch


Has anyone implemented sending Icinga2 performance metrics directly to ELS and use Grafana to create dashboards ?

I this this option is better than having Graphite/InfluxDB as additional stack ( they may have some advantages I guess ? )

I will see if I can find some documentation for the setup if there is one… I came across this - Add ElasticsearchWriter feature · Issue #5538 · Icinga/icinga2 · GitHub


I once tried it out, but tbh I don’t see a benefit using elastic instead of influxdb for perfdata. Influx is specialised for timeseries data and works very well together with grafana.
