Monitoring Elasticsearch

Diagnose and Troubleshoot Elasticsearch Cluster

This class bridges the gap between having proper Elasticsearch monitoring in place and understanding how to diagnose and troubleshoot the cluster. When moving from proof-of-concept to production, it’s important to have all the monitoring in place (i.e. gathering the right metrics and logs). Monitoring Elasticsearch online training gives a clear and deep understanding of how to read this data, along with on-demand APIs, in order to troubleshoot production issues. This Elasticsearch online course is taught by Radu Gheorghe‌‌, a seasoned Elasticsearch instructor and consultant from Sematext, author of “Elasticsearch in Action”, and frequent conference speaker.

Who should attend?

This Elasticsearch online course is designed for anyone operating Elasticsearch clusters:

  • A good understanding of core concepts (indices, shards, replicas, nodes) is required
  • This class dives deep under the hood of how Elasticsearch uses system resources, how nodes communicate to each other, etc.

What attendees say

Sematext was an ideal training partner for Parse.ly. We had just recently adopted Elasticsearch on a new project, and they gave us two days of solid training that was tailored to our team’s needs. The material was built atop strong foundations and moved quickly into advanced areas around querying, Lucene internals, and cluster performance. It was clear that it was all informed by real-world experience operating these systems at scale.
