The most basic kind of information you can get is the cluster information from the root index and the Indices API:


The response contains:

  • name - Name of the node.
  • cluster_name - Name of the cluster.
  • server - Server version string.
  • versions - Versions of the internal libraries.
  • options - Currently active options.
  • nodes - List of cluster nodes.

List Nodes

You can explicitly list all nodes in the cluster by using the Indices API and a Drill Selector:

GET /.nodes


You can retrieve information about the Xapiand server usage and state, by using the :metrics endpoint.

GET /:metrics

This returns a Prometheus compatible response with a bunch of useful metrics.
