When you run /debug/refresh, what does it refresh?

When you run the following 

https://<IP Address of Splunk instance>:<PortNumber>/en-US/debug/refresh 

What exactly do you refresh?

E.g. Indexes.conf, reading for new applications installed into splunk?

Is there a page where i can reference as to what it does, and a list of what it refreshes.

Thank you in advance for any help provided.

Debug/refresh forces a refresh on splunkd resources.

This method calls a splunkd refresh on all registered EAI handlers that
advertise a reload function. Alternate entities can be specified by appending
them via URI parameters. For example,

http://localhost:8000/debug/refresh?entity=admin/conf-times&entity=data/ui/manager

will request a refresh on only 'admin/conf-times' and 'data/ui/manager'.

1) not all splunkd endpoints support refreshing.
2) auth-services is excluded from the default set, as refreshing that system will
logout the current user; use the 'entity' param to force it
3) remote_index endpoint is configured for CLI use as it requires APP Name and APP Location to be passed to it as arguments
'''
When you debuf refresh you also get an output that shows you which entities are refreshed like the example below: 

Refreshing admin/conf-times OK
Refreshing data/ui/manager OK
Refreshing data/ui/nav OK
Refreshing data/ui/views OK

Would also like to know where can i find the reference for what this (data/ui/manager) actually refers to.

So that i can know exactly what is being reloaded.
