Nodes stats

The nodes stats API returns statistics about your cluster.

Path and HTTP methods

GET /_nodes/stats
GET /_nodes/<node_id>/stats
GET /_nodes/stats/<metric>
GET /_nodes/<node_id>/stats/<metric>
GET /_nodes/stats/<metric>/<index_metric>
GET /_nodes/<node_id>/stats/<metric>/<index_metric>

Path parameters

The following table lists the available path parameters. All path parameters are optional.

Parameter Type Description
nodeId String A comma-separated list of nodeIds used to filter results. Supports node filters. Defaults to _all.
metric String A comma-separated list of metric groups that will be included in the response. For example, jvm,fs. See the list of all metrics below. Defaults to all metrics.
index_metric String A comma-separated list of index metric groups that will be included in the response. For example, docs,store. See the list of all index metrics below. Defaults to all index metrics.

The following table lists all available metric groups.

Metric Description
indices Index statistics, such as size, document count, and search, index, and delete times for documents.
os Statistics about the host OS, including load, memory, and swapping.
process Statistics about processes, including their memory consumption, open file descriptors, and CPU usage.
jvm Statistics about the JVM, including memory pool, buffer pool, and garbage collection, and the number of loaded classes.
fs File system statistics, such as read/write statistics, data path, and free disk space.
transport Transport layer statistics about send/receive in cluster communication.
http Statistics about the HTTP layer.
breaker Statistics about the field data circuit breakers.
script Statistics about scripts, such as compilations and cache evictions.
discovery Statistics about cluster states.
ingest Statistics about ingest pipelines.
adaptive_selection Statistics about adaptive replica selection, which selects an eligible node using shard allocation awareness.
script_cache Statistics about script cache.
indexing_pressure Statistics about the node’s indexing pressure.
shard_indexing_pressure Statistics about shard indexing pressure.

To filter the information returned for the indices metric, you can use specific index_metric values. You can use these only when you use the following query types:

GET _nodes/stats/
GET _nodes/stats/_all
GET _nodes/stats/indices

The following index metrics are supported:

  • docs
  • store
  • indexing
  • get
  • search
  • merge
  • refresh
  • flush
  • warmer
  • query_cache
  • fielddata
  • completion
  • segments
  • translog
  • request_cache

For example, the following query requests statistics for docs and search:

GET _nodes/stats/indices/docs,search

Query parameters

The following table lists the available query parameters. All query parameters are optional.

Parameter Type Description
completion_fields String The fields to include in completion statistics. Supports comma-separated lists and wildcard expressions.
fielddata_fields String The fields to include in fielddata statistics. Supports comma-separated lists and wildcard expressions.
fields String The fields to include. Supports comma-separated lists and wildcard expressions.
groups String A comma-separated list of search groups to include in the search statistics.
level String Specifies whether statistics are aggregated at the cluster, index, or shard level. Valid values are indices, node, and shard.
timeout Time Sets the time limit for node response. Default is 30s.
include_segment_file_sizes Boolean If segment statistics are requested, this field specifies to return the aggregated disk usage of every Lucene index file. Default is false.

pipelines.id.time_in_millis Integer The total amount of time for preprocessing documents in the ingest pipeline, in milliseconds.
pipelines.id.failed Integer The total number of failed ingestions for the ingest pipeline.
pipelines.id.processors Array of objects Statistics for the ingest processors. Includes the number of documents that are currently transformed, the total number of transformed documents, the number of failed transformations, and the time spent transforming documents.

adaptive_selection

The adaptive_selection object contains the adaptive selection statistics. Each entry is specified by the node ID and has the properties listed below.

Field Field type Description
outgoing_searches Integer The number of outgoing search requests for the node.
avg_queue_size Integer The rolling average queue size of search requests for the node (exponentially weighted).
avg_service_time_ns Integer The rolling average service time for search requests, in nanoseconds (exponentially weighted).
avg_response_time_ns Integer The rolling average response time for search requests, in nanoseconds (exponentially weighted).
rank String The node’s rank that is used to select shards when routing requests.

indexing_pressure

The indexing_pressure object contains the indexing pressure statistics and has the following properties.

Field Field type Description
memory Object Statistics related to memory consumption for the indexing load.
memory.
    current
Object Statistics related to memory consumption for the current indexing load.
memory.
    current.
        combined_coordinating_and_primary_in_bytes
Integer The total memory used by indexing requests in the coordinating or primary stages, in bytes. A node can reuse the coordinating memory if the primary stage is run locally, so the total memory does not necessarily equal the sum of the coordinating and primary stage memory usage.
memory.
    current.
        coordinating_in_bytes
The total memory consumed by indexing requests in the coordinating stage, in bytes.  
memory.
    current.
        primary_in_bytes
Integer The total memory consumed by indexing requests in the primary stage, in bytes.
memory.
    current.
        replica_in_bytes
Integer The total memory consumed by indexing requests in the replica stage, in bytes.
memory.
    current.
        all_in_bytes
Integer The total memory consumed by indexing requests in the coordinating, primary, or replica stages.

shard_indexing_pressure

The shard_indexing_pressure object contains the shard indexing pressure statistics and has the following properties.

Field Field type Description
stats Object Statistics about shard indexing pressure.
total_rejections_breakup_shadow_mode Object If running in shadow mode, the total_rejections_breakup_shadow_mode object contains statistics about the request rejection criteria of all shards in the node.
total_rejections_breakup_shadow_mode.
    node_limits
Integer The total number of rejections due to the node memory limit. When all shards reach the memory limit assigned to the node (for example, 10% of heap size), the shard is unable to take in more traffic on the node, and the indexing request is rejected.
total_rejections_breakup_shadow_mode.
    no_successful_request_limits
Integer The total number of rejections when the node occupancy level is breaching its soft limit and the shard has multiple outstanding requests that are waiting to be executed. In this case, additional indexing requests are rejected until the system recovers.
total_rejections_breakup_shadow_mode.
    throughput_degradation_limits
Integer The total number of rejections when the node occupancy level is breaching its soft limit and there is a constant deterioration in the request turnaround at the shard level. In this case, additional indexing requests are rejected until the system recovers.
enabled Boolean Specifies whether the shard indexing pressure feature is turned on for the node.
enforced Boolean If true, the shard indexing pressure runs in enforced mode (there are rejections). If false, the shard indexing pressure runs in shadow mode (there are no rejections, but statistics are recorded and can be retrieved in the total_rejections_breakup_shadow_mode object). Only applicable if shard indexing pressure is enabled.
