Praeco is an open-source tool for alerting Elasticsearch. It can build the alert for elasticsearch in an interactive query builder. A preview of the result will be shown in charts. This tool has an easy installation & configuration process which we will learn further in this blog. We can receive alerts on commonly used channels like slack, email, and many more.
This will have two parts- first, we install & configure the Praeco; in the second part, we learn – how to create an alert?
Why do we use this over others?
In terms of open-source tools which are used for alerting in elasticsearch the most popular option is elastalert. In this creating an alert is a very hectic process because one has to write YAML which can be sometimes frustrating for those who don’t know the syntax.
Now we have to search for other options, which leads us to Praeco. This provides an interactive GUI to create the alert condition and hassle-free integration with alert channels.
