(Otis, yes, this weekend we are putting in sematext's monitor to try and
help us out with the following!)
We are trying to just debug slow updates to indexes and slow searches.
anything to help what we should look for would be helpful.
1 - the cpus are working minimally on the 3 of the 4 nodes that we have
2 - if there is anything that i can guess at (until we add more monitoring
this weekend) is that our primary node seems to be taking all of the
updates and queries.
could this be a results of drivers not using the other nodes? or, does
all traffic supposed to go to the primary node?
3 - anything to turn on in elastic that would help track down usage
patterns (we have multiple tools accessing the nodes) and see how we find
Hoping the sematext monitor of queries per node, and throughput will help
analyze some of this as well.
If we were to use something like YourKit to analyze, anything that would be
a good pointer to why there are slow downs?
