Monitoring Indices stats

How to build custom monitoring opensearch dashboard to showcase index related stats for all existing indices.

I think it’s a matter of:

  • collecting the metrics from the /_stats endpoint
  • sending them to OpenSearch in a separate index
  • building the dashboard to plot these metrics. Note that some metrics are cumulative, so you’ll need a serial diff

If you’re looking for something already built, check our OpenSearch Monitoring Integration. I’m responsible for most of it, so feel free to reach out if you have any questions :slight_smile:
