Use the monitoring console to view indexer cluster status
You can use the monitoring console to monitor most aspects of your deployment. This topic discusses the console dashboards that provide insight into indexing performance.
The primary documentation for the monitoring console is located in Monitoring Splunk Enterprise.
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 manager node dashboard, described in "View the manager node dashboard".
The Indexer Clustering: Service Activity dashboard provides information on matters such as bucket-fixing activities and warnings and errors.
