What are some searches I can run to check out the current situation with my queues?

I need some help with figuring out some potential blocked queues. What searches can be run to help me figure this out?

index=_internal source=*metrics.log group=queue | chart perc90(current_size) by name

Note: This will give you a table of queues by name. Take note of any queue sizes that are consistently greater than 500. By default, the queue size limit is 1000, so when a queue gets to that size, it is blocked and data-flow stops completely

It's often better to use "timechart" instead of "chart" so that you can see when specific queues were filled.
