Use the DMC to view distributed search status

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 distributed search.

The primary documentation for the distributed management console is located in the Distributed Management Console Manual.

There are two distributed search dashboards under the Search menu:

  • Distributed Search: Instance
  • Distributed Search: Deployment

Thes dashboards provide detailed information on a variety of issues, such as:

  • The health of the peer nodes
  • The health of the search heads
  • The knowledge bundle replication process
  • The dispatch directories on the search heads

View the dashboards themselves for more information. In addition, see Distributed search dashboards in the Distributed Management Console Manual.

You can also use Settings to get information about the search peers. See View search peers in Settings.
