Indexing: Indexer Clustering: Service Activity
This topic is a reference for the Indexer clustering: Service activity dashboard in the Monitoring Console. See "About the Monitoring Console."
What does this view show?
Several panels about indexer clustering.
Interpret results in this view
The panels in this dashboard might show no data. They show data only when bucket repair activity has occurred.
These panels help identify how many fixup tasks Splunk Enterprise has to undertake (that is, its backlog). A fixup task can result in more than one job.
The last two panels measure the time spent hitting the clustering endpoints.
Splunk Support and/or engineering might look at this data to profile the type of activity the cluster manager is doing.
What to look for in this view
Use this view when an unforeseen event occurs in the cluster, such as a peer going down.
Ideally you will never have tasks pending.
If the search factor is not met, your search results will be incomplete.
If generation is not met, the entire cluster is unsearchable. This is unlikely to happen with clusters after 6.1.
After an event, you can watch this dashboard to make sure that the numbers of tasks (and jobs) trend down. For a healthy cluster, you want these panels to have no data.
Troubleshoot this view
Make sure you have completed all of the Monitoring Console setup steps.
