how to check the average queries time entered by the user

Path Finder


Is there any way to find out how much time queries were taking to complete the job when the users enter the query on seach head (i would like to know average time for all the queries entered by the users ) . Can we use DMC to check this or is there a query to find it ?

Use the DMC to get this info

Here's a quick and dirty search you can use to get average time per search

index=_internal user="*" | timechart avg(date_second)

Here's another search which will give average time per search per user

index=_internal user="*" | timechart avg(date_second) by user

On your MC go to Search -> Activity -> Instance. The bottom panel on that dashboard is called Aggregate Search Runtime and shows what you are seeking.
