Delay in search time field extractions on search head cluster

I have a three-node search head cluster, when I create a field extraction through the GUI, it takes hours for it to become active. This used to take less than 5 minutes, any ideas why this could be happening?

Thanks

Try adding ... | extract reload=true to your search to pull in the changes immediately, but this only works for you. If you need it to work for everybody, try this app (thanks @mus):
Add-on Debug Refresh: https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1871/

Thanks for the reply @woodcock , however neither ... | extract reload=true nor running a debug refresh works.

I would definitely open a support case. Something is VERY not right. Be sure to report back here what you discover.
