Examplesedit

Example with default columnsedit

GET /_cat/thread_pool

The API returns the following response:

node-0 analyze             0 0 0
...
node-0 fetch_shard_started 0 0 0
node-0 fetch_shard_store   0 0 0
node-0 flush               0 0 0
...
node-0 write               0 0 0

Example with explicit columnsedit

The following API request returns the id, name, active, rejected, and completed columns. The request limits returned information to the generic thread pool.

GET /_cat/thread_pool/generic?v&h=id,name,active,rejected,completed

The API returns the following response:

id                     name    active rejected completed
0EWUhXeBQtaVGlexUeVwMg generic      0        0        70
