How to query Indexers for CPU/Mem/License information?

Hi,

I am trying to build a glass table which would list each indexer and current parameters associated with it. e.g. # of unique hosts, # unique sourcetypes etc.

To add more information, I also want to include the current memory / CPU / License utilization for that indexer. Is there a way to query an indexers for these items just like we do for sourcetype/hosts?

We have a monitoring console which displays this data for each server, but it's installed on a separate server. How can I get these values directly via Indexer?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

~ Abhi

The _introspection internal index has this information. Starting with v6.3, the DMC was introduced which provides quick dashboards based off the introspection index.

Hi abhijittikekar,
you can see DMC searches on the machine where DMC is installed and then copy and adjust them in your panels for your scope.
