Earlier today, we changed the searching (peer config) so that our search heads will only perform searches across 4 physical indexers.
We did this in an attempt to reduce what we think are issues with some indexer instances on virtual machines.
What report can I run that will best highlight performance for searches, comparatively? My head's awash in Indexing Performance vs Search Activity vs Search Usage, and I keep sliding down rabbit holes. And no, we didn't do the reconfig based on another report, nor did we baseline anything to work off of, report-wise. 😞
