Node Stats : Which metrics are cumulative?


We have setup certain alarms on metrics that are obtained in node stats, and would like to understand if there is a list of metrics which are cumulative in node stats output obtained from elastic search.

By cumulative I mean, new numbers are added on to the existing numbers from the start of that node in the cluster.


I don't think that there are cumulative stats, but some stats are counters and therefore can be incremented in time (like the number of read operations, the number of documents etc)


Yes the counters one. Is there a list for these metrics which are incremented in time ? The names are not intuitive enough for increments.

No, I don't think there's such list.
