Complex, fast-moving datasets make it nearly impossible to spot infrastructure problems, intruders, or business issues as they happen using rules or humans looking at dashboards. X-Pack machine learning features automatically model the behavior of your Elasticsearch data — trends, periodicity, and more — in real time to identify issues faster, streamline root cause analysis, and reduce false positives.
Get notified so that you don’t miss a thing. Alerting features in X-Pack gives you the full power of the Elasticsearch query language to identify changes in your data that are interesting to you or your infrastructure team. In other words, if you can query something in Elasticsearch, you can build an alert on it. Get alerts in your preferred communications, like Slack, email and HipChat, and features webhook outputs to integrate with your existing monitoring infrastructure. A complete alerting history is kept for easy visualisation in Kibana.
Common examples of alerts could be:

Graph offers a relationship orientated approach that lets you explore the connections in your data using the relevance capabilities of Elasticsearch. Use graph to distinguish between popularity and relevance, and explore the Elasticsearch indices to uncover hidden relationships.
Quickly generates reports of any Kibana visualization or dashboard, on demand, scheduled for later, trigger by conditions. All these reports are also easily shareable to stakeholders, and can be scheduled to be delivered at specific times. The Reporting feature can handle large volumes of reporting requests, scaling along with your enterprise’s needs.
With X-Pack, your Elastic Stack experience can be infinitely enriched. Here’s how:
