Use the DMC to view indexer cluster status

You can use the 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 tDistributed Management Console Manual.

There are two indexer clustering dashboards under the Indexing menu:

  • Indexer Clustering: Status
  • Indexer Clustering: Service Activity

The Indexer Clustering: Status dashboard provides information on the state of your cluster. To a large extent, it duplicates the information in the master dashboard, described in "View the master dashboard".

The Indexer Clustering: Service Activity dashboard provides information on matters such as bucket-fixing activities and warnings and errors.

View the dashboards themselves for more information. In addition, see "Indexer Clustering: Status" and "Indexer Clustering: Service Activity" in the Distributed Management Console Manual.
