Nodes hot_threadsedit

An API allowing to get the current hot threads on each node in the cluster. Endpoints are /_nodes/hot_threads, and /_nodes/{nodesIds}/hot_threads.

The output is plain text with a breakdown of each node’s top hot threads. Parameters allowed are:


number of hot threads to provide, defaults to 3.


the interval to do the second sampling of threads. Defaults to 500ms.


The type to sample, defaults to cpu, but supports wait and block to see hot threads that are in wait or block state.


If true, known idle threads (e.g. waiting in a socket select, or to get a task from an empty queue) are filtered out. Defaults to true.
