Nodes Statsedit

Nodes statisticsedit

The cluster nodes stats API allows to retrieve one or more (or all) of the cluster nodes statistics.

GET /_nodes/stats
GET /_nodes/nodeId1,nodeId2/stats

The first command retrieves stats of all the nodes in the cluster. The second command selectively retrieves nodes stats of only nodeId1 and nodeId2. All the nodes selective options are explained here.

By default, all stats are returned. You can limit this by combining any of indices, os, process, jvm, transport, http, fs, breaker and thread_pool. For example:

indices

Indices stats about size, document count, indexing and deletion times, search times, field cache size, merges and flushes

fs

File system information, data path, free disk space, read/write stats (see FS information)

http

HTTP connection information

jvm

JVM stats, memory pool information, garbage collection, buffer pools, number of loaded/unloaded classes

os

Operating system stats, load average, mem, swap (see OS statistics)

process

Process statistics, memory consumption, cpu usage, open file descriptors (see Process statistics)

thread_pool

Statistics about each thread pool, including current size, queue and rejected tasks

transport

Transport statistics about sent and received bytes in cluster communication

breaker

Statistics about the field data circuit breaker

discovery

Statistics about the discovery

ingest

Statistics about ingest preprocessing

# return just indices
GET /_nodes/stats/indices

# return just os and process
GET /_nodes/stats/os,process

# return just process for node with IP address 10.0.0.1
GET /_nodes/10.0.0.1/stats/process

All stats can be explicitly requested via /_nodes/stats/_all or /_nodes/stats?metric=_all.

Note

For the cgroup stats to be visible, cgroups must be compiled into the kernal, the cpu and cpuacct cgroup subsystems must be configured and stats must be readable from /sys/fs/cgroup/cpu and /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuacct.
