El pasado martes asistí en Barcelona a un evento del Elastic{ON} Tour, donde el equipo de Elastic Iberia comandado por Ignacio Suárez, Matias Cascallares y Regina Sáenz nos presentó el roadmap y novedades del popular motor de búsqueda analítica y su stack de aplicaciones. Tras una introducción histórica del producto creado en 2010, nos mostraron la orientación actual hacia paquetes de soluciones o casos de uso sobre el stack: Búsqueda de sites y aplicaciones (Site Search / App Search y......

When enabling monitoring xpack in Elastic Search and Logstash, you can enjoy the Stack Monitoring section in Kibana. This section provides a complete interface for monitoring your ELK setup including Elastic Search cluster, Logstash and Kibana. For enabling (you need to have security xpack enabled first to define the application usersset), and then restart your components with the following config: In logstash.yml you should set (once authentication is enabled in ES): # X-Pack Monitoring #......

Playing Heartbeats in Elastic Search 7

Last days I was exploring several features of Elastic Stack in version 7.2, including some of the available Beats agents. In this case, I played a beat with Heartbeat agent, that it is able to perform direct monitoring via TCP / HTTP / ICMP for a given url / host of a given service. It is a basic direct monitoring where we can ping everything, and then indexing this monitoring data in Elastic Search. In Kibana, we can find an Uptime section for visualization. It is also available a (useful)......

Kibana dashboard for monitoring Liferay JVM via JMX

Some time ago we did a Kibana dashboard for JMX monitoring in Alfresco via Logstash. Today I'll briefly let some notes for a similar configuration but with other tool of the Elastic Stack, Metricbeat, using a jolokia plugin for HTTP - JMX bridge. The main difference is that in the previous example, we had a logstash process for getting JMX information in a Tomcat node, and now we have a lighter agent, Metricbeat, which is ideally better suited for this purpose. Besides the Metricbeat client,......

As you probably know, Elastic Search is a distributed, document-oriented search and analytics engine, which supports structured and unstructured queries with a schemaless model ahead of time. Elastic Search is used as a search engine, and often for web-scale log analytics or real-time application monitoring. In the past, we previously wrote some examples for monitoring or auditing applications such as Liferay or Alfresco. Some weeks / months ago, one important change was announced in Elastic......

Auditing added content in Alfresco repository II

In the last post about "Auditing added content in Alfresco repository", we talked about how to create a simple audit console based on an Alfresco behaviour. Let's give some details for this example. The idea is quite simple, for Alfresco creation events, to write an event log in catalina.out, such the following one: 2019-04-15 08:50:02,346 DEBUG [repo.behavior.AuditContentCreatedBehavior] [http-apr-8080-exec-5] version created => uuid=845e3c4e-197a-472a-9b85-cf3a31ad7ae0......

Auditing added content in Alfresco repository

One of the most important questions for many customers, once they are working with a document management system (now content services), is to know how they are using it. They want to obtain basic usage metrics about their business processes and custom content types to understand quantitatively how critical they are. Sometimes even simpler questions (sometimes audit related or statistics related) are not easy to obtain, such as how many documents do we have in the repository, what are the most......

Analyzing Tomcat log access data with Docker ELK resources

In last Alfresco Devcon, I presented some basic configuration for Alfresco monitoring with Elastic stack (ELK). A very nice automated setup for testing this configuration in ELK 6.1 is via the docker compose setup given in this github project: $ git clone https://github.com/deviantony/docker-elk $ cd docker-elk This is an opportunity of checking Elastic Stack new features in 6.1 version, for example the new Kibana homepage, some UI accesibility new features, the dashboard full screen mode,......

More on monitoring dashboards for Alfresco using SOLR, Banana and Apache Zeppelin

avatar
Cesar Capillas Jan 08, 2018

In the previous posts I talked about ELK stack for monitoring Alfresco. But another possibility for loading metrics or logs information, extracted by logstash, is a SOLR index server (instead of Elastic Search), which is part of Alfresco architecture by default, and in principle, it would seem more natural for indexing our Alfresco logs and metrics. Besides, there exists some ports for Kibana in SOLR, such Banana or Silk, that may be deployed in our SOLR dedicated instance. Basically, you......

Kibana dashboard for monitoring Alfresco Community via OOTB Support Tools

Some weeks ago I wrote a post about how to set up a basic Kibana dashboard representing System Performance and Active Sessions in Alfresco Enterprise via JMX metrics from a logstash JMX input. As you probably know, no such Alfresco JMX objects are available in Alfresco Community, such as active sessions (only the java and catalina objects are available). Anyway, it is possible to obtain a similar dashboard using the relevant information from a webscript, for example, the JSON-based webscripts......

Kibana dashboard for monitoring Alfresco JMX metrics

Cesar Capillas Nov 12, 2017

This weekend I read in Elastic blog that Mr. Robot uses Kibana for monitoring the Dark Army, so I decided to write a post about a recent monitoring project for representing some basic (but interesting) Alfresco JMX metrics in a clustered environment, in which I was involved last week. As you probably know, Kibana is a useful tool of the ELK stack, composed by Elastic Search as indexing backend, Logstash for data extraction, and the cited Kibana for graphic representation of the extracted......
