23.2. Sending metrics to a remote instance of Elasticsearch
NOTE: Red Hat does not own or maintain Elasticsearch. You need to have a working familiarity with Elasticsearch setup and maintenance to deploy this option.
You can configure the Red Hat Virtualization Manager and hosts to send metrics data to your existing Elasticsearch instance.
To do this, run the Ansible role that configures
rsyslog on the Manager and all hosts to collect
vdsm.log and collectd metrics, and send them to your Elasticsearch instance.

rsyslog on the hosts to collect logs and metrics.
You do not need to repeat this procedure for new hosts. Every new host that is added is automatically configured by the Manager to send the data to Elasticsearch during host-deploy.
- Log in to the Manager machine using SSH.
