Elasticsearch Exporter overview

Elasticsearch Exporter is a prometheus exporter for various metrics about ElasticSearch.

Kommander catalog

Kommander catalog adds integration for Elasticsearch Exporter in Helm-based drivers

To access the catalog:

  1. Create a Workspace
  2. Attach a Cluster to the Workspace
  3. Create a Project in the Workspace
  4. Select the created Project
  5. View the available Platform Services in the Project Catalog
  6. Select the version you’d like to deploy from the version drop-down, and then select Deploy.


From the Project Catalog select the desired version of Elasticsearch Exporter, and select Deploy.

The Kommander UI should resemble the following image. The dialog is populated with appropriate defaults:

Elasticsearch Exporter Service Install Configuration

  • The es.uri field above should refer to the Elasticsearch client.

You will see the following pods under the project namespace on the Kubernetes cluster (assuming Elasticsearch is already running):

kubectl get pods
