Windows Performance Monitor counters have been added for:

  • Enterprise Vault Indexing Volumes Processing
  • Enterprise Vault Index Query Server

The main indexing cycle is visible using the following steps:

  1. Item additions/deletions/updates fetched
  2. Item additions/deletions/updates submitted
  3. Item additions/deletions/updates acknowledged
  4. Item additions/deletions/updates audited (successful)

The Enterprise Vault Index Query Server performance counters are maintained and updated by the indexing agents to capture the state of each search that has been performed since the last Indexing Service restart.

Counter Name

 

Counter Description

Failed queries

 

The total number of queries that have failed since the query server started.

 

Failed queries due to search engine out of resources

 

The total number of queries that have failed since the query server started because the search engine did not have the resources to perform the search.

 

Queries

 

The total number of queries executed since the query server started.

 

Queries in progress

 

The number of queries being processed by the query server.

 

Queries per second
