Clarification of the query_total metric in the cluster nodes stats api

Hi,

In _cluster/nodes/stats what exactly does the
nodes/[node]/indices/search/query_total metric represent?

Is it:

  • the elasticsearch queries count as submitted by the http or java
    interface for that node?
  • the queries count for each shard on that node, for example, if one ES
    search query hits 4 shards on that node, the query_total will be
    incremented by 4

Thanks

Hi Colin,

It's the queries count per shard, like in the example you gave.

Best regards,

Thanks Radu. Right. So the "correct" definition would be query_total is the
total number of queries across all lucene instances of a node.
