Get data frame analytics jobs stats APIedit

Retrieves the operational statistics of one or more data frame analytics jobs. The API accepts a GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest object and returns a GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse.

Get data frame analytics jobs stats requestedit

A GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest requires either a data frame analytics job ID, a comma-separated list of IDs, or the special wildcard _all to get the statistics for all data frame analytics jobs.

GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest request = new GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest("my-analytics-config");

Synchronous executionedit

When executing a GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest in the following manner, the client waits for the GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse to be returned before continuing with code execution:

GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse response =
    client.machineLearning().getDataFrameAnalyticsStats(request, RequestOptions.DEFAULT);

Synchronous calls may throw an IOException in case of either failing to parse the REST response in the high-level REST client, the request times out or similar cases where there is no response coming back from the server.

In cases where the server returns a 4xx or 5xx error code, the high-level client tries to parse the response body error details instead and then throws a generic ElasticsearchException and adds the original ResponseException as a suppressed exception to it.

Asynchronous executionedit

Executing a GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest can also be done in an asynchronous fashion so that the client can return directly. Users need to specify how the response or potential failures will be handled by passing the request and a listener to the asynchronous get-data-frame-analytics-stats method:

client.machineLearning().getDataFrameAnalyticsStatsAsync(request, RequestOptions.DEFAULT, listener); 

The GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest to execute and the ActionListener to use when the execution completes

The asynchronous method does not block and returns immediately. Once it is completed the ActionListener is called back using the onResponse method if the execution successfully completed or using the onFailure method if it failed. Failure scenarios and expected exceptions are the same as in the synchronous execution case.

A typical listener for get-data-frame-analytics-stats looks like:

ActionListener<GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse> listener = new ActionListener<GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse>() {
    public void onResponse(GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse response) {

    public void onFailure(Exception e) {

Called when the execution is successfully completed.

Called when the whole GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsRequest fails.


The returned GetDataFrameAnalyticsStatsResponse contains the requested data frame analytics job statistics.
