Elastic Observability allows you to visualize infrastructure metrics to help diagnose problematic spikes, identify high resource utilization, automatically discover and track pods, and unify your metrics with logs and APM data.
Using Elastic Agent integrations, you can ingest and analyze metrics from servers, Docker containers, Kubernetes orchestrations, explore and analyze application telemetry, and more.

- View infrastructure metrics by resource type: Use the Inventory page to get a metrics-driven view of your infrastructure grouped by resource type.
- Analyze and compare hosts: Use the Hosts page to get a metrics-driven view of your infrastructure backed by an easy-to-use interface called Lens.
- Detect metric anomalies: Detect and inspect memory usage and network traffic anomalies for hosts and Kubernetes pods.
- Configure settings: Learn how to configure infrastructure UI settings.
- Metrics reference: Learn about key metrics used for infrastructure monitoring.
- Required fields: Learn about the fields required to display data in the Infrastructure UI.
By default, the Infrastructure UI displays metrics from Elasticsearch indices that
metricbeat-* index patterns. To learn how to change
this behavior, refer to Configure settings.
