Search facility status

The Search page in the HCP System Management Console displays the current availability of each search facility and displays the current indexing status of the metadata query engine. To refresh this information without reloading the page, click Refresh Now below the Indexing Status column in the data table.

Search facility availability

The following table describes the possible values for search facility availability.

Search facilityValueDescription
Metadata query engineAvailableThe metadata query engine is running on all HCP storage nodes.
Partial

The metadata query engine is running on at least one but not all HCP storage nodes. This is most likely because one or more storage nodes are unavailable.

If this value persists while all storage nodes are available, contact your authorized HCP service provider for help.

Unavailable

The metadata query engine is not running on any storage nodes.

If this value persists while at least one storage node is available, contact your authorized HCP service provider for help.

HDDS search facilityAvailableThe server specified in the HDDS search facility is a HDDS server and is available.
UnavailableThe server specified in the HDDS search facility configuration is unavailable or is not an HDDS server.
Not configuredThe HDDS search facility configuration does not specify a server.
Authentication failureThe HDDS search configuration specifies a username and password for statistics, but the combination of username and password is not valid for any HDDS user account.

Metadata query engine indexing status

The following table describes the possible values for the indexing status of the metadata query engine.

ValueDescription
Enabled, startingIndexing is enabled and in the process of starting.
Enabled, runningIndexing is enabled and running.
Enabled, optimizingIndexing is enabled but is temporarily not running because the metadata query engine is in the process of optimizing the index. When the optimization is complete, indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, balancingIndexing is enabled but is temporarily not running while HCP redistributes the index across the available storage. When the redistribution is complete, indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, upgradingIndexing is enabled but is temporarily not running while the HCP system is being upgraded. When the upgrade is complete, indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, pausedIndexing is enabled but is currently paused. This status can appear, for example, when the metadata query engine experiences a temporary error. When the situation is resolved, indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, stoppedIndexing is enabled but not running. This status can appear, for example, when the index has reached its maximum allowed size. When the situation is resolved, indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, out of spaceIndexing is enabled but not running because insufficient space is available on the index-enabled logical volumes. When more space becomes available, indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, out of memoryIndexing is enabled but not running because insufficient memory is available for the metadata query engine to continue the indexing process. When more memory is added to the system (typically, by adding storage nodes), indexing automatically resumes.
Enabled, missing index segmentsIndexing is enabled not running because at least one part of the index is unavailable. This status can appear, for example, while an index-enabled logical volume is unavailable. When the situation is resolved, indexing automatically resumes.
Disabled, stoppingIndexing is disabled and in the process of stopping.
Disabled, stoppedIndexing is disabled and has completely stopped.

If indexing has stopped unexpectedly and does not automatically restart, contact your authorized HCP service provider for help.
