What are the various queues in Splunk

I found the following configuration in my indexers

[queue]
maxSize = 500KB

[queue=AQ]
maxSize = 10MB

[queue=WEVT]
maxSize = 5MB

[queue=aggQueue]
maxSize = 1MB

[queue=fschangemanager_queue]
maxSize = 5MB

[queue=parsingQueue]
maxSize = 6MB

Can anyone help me in understanding each of those queues?

Out of those which one is indexing queue?

The overview of the data pipeline and queues in the documentation is in the topic "How data moves through Splunk" in the Distributed Deployment Manual. See also inputs.conf. But I don't see anything in the spec files about these specific settings, so the Answers links that Kristian provided are your best bet. Are you having issues with blocked queues, or are you just learning and discovering?

In the splunk environment i am working on, I am losing data(i.e the events coming from Universal forwarder to Indexer), wanted to know if i am losing data because of queues being full.
