Use the DMC to view indexing performance
You can use the distributed management console (DMC) to monitor most aspects of your deployment. This topic discusses the console dashboards that provide insight into indexing performance.
The primary documentation for the distributed management console is located in the Distributed Management Console Manual.
There are two performance dashboards under the Indexing menu:
- Indexing Performance: Instance
- Indexing Performance: Deployment
As their names suggest, they provide similar information, scoped either to a single instance or to the entire deployment.
The performance dashboards provide a wide variety of information on indexing processes, such as:
- Indexing rate
- Queue fill ratios
- CPU information for various parts of the data pipeline
