How do check the number of events of an index?

For example, I have added some other indexes, I want to know that whether the events have been sent into the corresponding index ?
And I also want to know that the NUMBER of events of that index?

The easiest way is probably using eventcount:

| eventcount index=myindex

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.3/SearchReference/Eventcount

Note that dbinspect is good, but will not work in a distributed cluster, thought it can be run independently on each indexer.
