Indexing: SmartStore

Several dashboards monitor SmartStore status. The dashboards are scoped either to a single instance or to the entire deployment. Find the dashboards under the Indexing menu and the SmartStore submenu:

  • SmartStore Activity: Instance
  • SmartStore Activity: Deployment
  • SmartStore Cache Performance: Instance
  • SmartStore Cache Performance: Deployment

SmartStore Activity dashboards

The SmartStore Activity dashboards provide information on activity related to the remote storage, such as:

  • Remote storage connectivity
  • Bucket upload/download activity
  • Bucket upload/download failure count

The SmartStore Activity dashboards also include check boxes that you can select to show progress if you are currently performing data migration or bootstrapping.

SmartStore Cache Performance dashboards

The SmartStore Cache Performance dashboards provide information on the local caches, such as:

  • The values for the server.conf settings that affect cache eviction
  • The bucket eviction rate
  • Portion of search time spent downloading buckets from remote storage
  • Cache hits and misses
  • Repeat bucket downloads
