How do we know whether typing queues are blocked or not?

Hi All,

How do we know whether typing queues are blocked or not?

Is it from Internal logs?

From the backend of the server, is it possible to find the queue blocks?

Hi @vijaysri,

you can find blocked queues is MOnitoring Console at [Settings -- Monitoring Console -- Indexing -- Indexing Performance: Instance]

or running a search like this

index=_internal blocked=true 
| stats count BY host

or this:

index=_internal  source=*metrics.log sourcetype=splunkd group=queue 
| eval name=case(name=="aggqueue","2 - Aggregation Queue",
 name=="indexqueue", "4 - Indexing Queue",
 name=="parsingqueue", "1 - Parsing Queue",
 name=="typingqueue", "3 - Typing Queue",
 name=="splunktcpin", "0 - TCP In Queue",
 name=="tcpin_cooked_pqueue", "0 - TCP In Queue") 
| eval max=if(isnotnull(max_size_kb),max_size_kb,max_size) 
| eval curr=if(isnotnull(current_size_kb),current_size_kb,current_size) 
| eval fill_perc=round((curr/max)*100,2) 
| bin _time span=1m
| stats Median(fill_perc) AS "fill_percentage" by host, _time, name 
| where (fill_percentage>70 AND name!="4 - Indexing Queue") OR (fill_percentage>70 AND name="4 - Indexing Queue"

Ciao.

hi @vijaysri 

yes from Internal logs you can check for blocking queues , especially from metrics.log  

1. you can check blocked quques from  Monioting Console 

Indexing->Performance->Indexing Performance : Instance.

2. from CLI uisng metrics.log  

more metrics.log | grep -i name=typingqueue

you can look for blocked=true messages 

FYI Queue Order 

1.parsingQueue
2.aggQueue/merginig
3.typingQueue
4.indexQueue
