cat thread pooledit

The thread_pool command shows cluster wide thread pool statistics per node. By default the active, queue and rejected statistics are returned for the bulk, index and search thread pools.

% curl 192.168.56.10:9200/_cat/thread_pool
host1 192.168.1.35 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0
host2 192.168.1.36 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0

The first two columns contain the host and ip of a node.

host      ip
host1 192.168.1.35
host2 192.168.1.36

The next three columns show the active queue and rejected statistics for the bulk thread pool.

bulk.active bulk.queue bulk.rejected
          0          0             0

The remaining columns show the active queue and rejected statistics of the index and search thread pool respectively.

Also other statistics of different thread pools can be retrieved by using the h (header) parameter.

% curl 'localhost:9200/_cat/thread_pool?v&h=id,host,suggest.active,suggest.rejected,suggest.completed'
host      suggest.active suggest.rejected suggest.completed
host1                  0                0                 0
host2                  0                0                 0

Here the host columns and the active, rejected and completed suggest thread pool statistic are displayed. The suggest thread pool won’t be displayed by default, so you always need to be specific about what statistic you want to display.

The thread pool name (or alias) must be combined with a thread pool field below to retrieve the requested information.

Thread Pool Fieldsedit

For each thread pool, you can load details about it by using the field names in the table below, either using the full field name (e.g. bulk.active) or its alias (e.g. sa is equivalent to search.active).

Field NameAliasDescription

type

t

The current (*) type of thread pool (cached, fixed or scaling)

active

a

The number of active threads in the current thread pool

size

s

The number of threads in the current thread pool

queue

q

The number of tasks in the queue for the current thread pool

queueSize

qs

The maximum number of tasks in the queue for the current thread pool

rejected

r

The number of rejected threads in the current thread pool

largest

l

The highest number of active threads in the current thread pool

completed

c

Other Fieldsedit

In addition to details about each thread pool, it is also convenient to get an understanding of where those thread pools reside. As such, you can request other details like the ip of the responding node(s).

Field NameAliasDescription

id

nodeId

The unique node ID

pid

p

The process ID of the running node

host

h

The hostname for the current node

ip
