Descriptionedit

You can use the cluster nodes stats API to retrieve statistics for nodes in a cluster.

All the nodes selective options are explained here.

By default, all stats are returned. You can limit the returned information by using metrics.

Examplesedit

# 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.

You can get information about indices stats on node, indices, or shards level.

# Fielddata summarized by node
GET /_nodes/stats/indices/fielddata?fields=field1,field2

# Fielddata summarized by node and index
GET /_nodes/stats/indices/fielddata?level=indices&fields=field1,field2

# Fielddata summarized by node, index, and shard
GET /_nodes/stats/indices/fielddata?level=shards&fields=field1,field2

# You can use wildcards for field names
GET /_nodes/stats/indices/fielddata?fields=field*

You can get statistics about search groups for searches executed on this node.

# All groups with all stats
GET /_nodes/stats?groups=_all

# Some groups from just the indices stats
GET /_nodes/stats/indices?groups=foo,bar

Retrieve ingest statistics onlyedit

To return only ingest-related node statistics, set the <metric> path parameter to ingest and use the filter_path query parameter.

GET /_nodes/stats/ingest?filter_path=nodes.*.ingest

You can use the metric and filter_path query parameters to get the same response.

GET /_nodes/stats?metric=ingest&filter_path=nodes.*.ingest

To further refine the response, change the filter_path value. For example, the following request only returns ingest pipeline statistics.

GET /_nodes/stats?metric=ingest&filter_path=nodes.*.ingest.pipelines
