ElasTest is able to monitor the health of various of its components. Monitoring capabilities can be divided in two areas:
- Resource usage: Monitors CPU, memory and other component metrics.
- Component containers: Monitors docker status and logs.
ElasTest is able to monitor the health of various of its componets and allows correlated queries aiding the fault location within the platform in an optimized manner.

Visualizing the Relevant Metrics
After accessing the monitoring dashboard, the metrics will be displayed like in the following figure, once the data starts to be collected:
In the figure above, on the top left we have a summary of the running containers' metrics. On the top right we see the active containers and the workload it represents for the node on the color scale. Finally, underneath, we have specific metrics for the node such as network activity, CPU usage and memory.
Moreover, if we hover over the plots, we use the mouse pointer to observe the values for a specific time in the metrics plot, as seen in the following figure:
