How do I tell if an indexer is in maintenance mode?

Motivator

On the CLI of a clustered indexer, what a command I can run (or perhaps a search, if REST needs to be hit) that will tell me if the cluster is in maintenance mode right now or not?

Figured it out. Maintenance mode is listed as 0 (disabled) or 1 (enabled) in:

$ ./splunk list peer-info
    slave
            base_generation_id:345
            is_registered:1
            last_heartbeat_attempt:0
            maintenance_mode:1
            restart_state:NoRestart
            site:default
            status:Up

Hi Jason,

For checking the cluster master status from search peers or the search head run this command from web ui or the command line, (status will be described below 0/1 for the maintenance mode)
web ui

|rest /services/cluster/master/info

command line:

/opt/splunk/bin/splunk search "|rest /services/cluster/master/info"

Go to your cluster master and execute this command, '

./splunk show maintenance-mode

Maintenance mode : 0 indicates maintenance mode is OFF.
Maintenance mode : 1 indicates maintenance mode is ON.
or

login to your cluster master web UI and , settings -> index clustering, there you can see the status.

Thanks,
V

I'm on the cli of the indexer, not the cluster master. as indexers aren't search peers of the cluster master, the above rest command won't work. Thanks though.
