I have six indexers in cluster and 2 search heads. Only one of my indexers is showing >90% CPU load in some other server monitoring tool even when all my inputs are disabled. Also when I run the top command to check the CPU usage of that particular indexer when all my inputs are disabled it shows only 3% to us. What's the best way to check the CPU load and where am I going wrong?
We have a similar situation. Looking at the distribution of the daily license across the six indexers helped us a lot. It's on the license master server at licensing.
I assume you would expect an even distribution of the license across the six servers. It's interesting to see what it would show you...
Here is what I would do to identify the issue.
The CPU load is is showing up a high percentage >90% on that indexer. How should I check the CPU load and make it less than 90% like my other five indexers? How to find out what is going wrong with that only indexer?
