Query and Search Management

Insight and control over your queries and searches

ChaosSearch offers added functionality to the Kibana interface. Users can be granted access to two added features: a Progress Bar and a Cancel Query button. These extra features allow our users to have visibility into the duration of an executed query, and the control to cancel a running query.

Query Status

The ChaosSearch Kibana interface offers a unique view into the status of your queries. While a query is running, the Query Progress bar displays information about the query, including:

  • A progress bar with a summary of the segments being scanned, and the breakdown of active and pending segments
  • A status message that the query is running
  • An estimate for the size of the data being scanned for the query

The progress bar updates while the segments of data are processed. As data becomes available, it is periodically loaded to update both the histogram and the records list. When complete, the status message changes to Last query complete.


Query Cancelation

For any long-running queries, ChaosSearch provides a Cancel Query button in the top-right corner to stop the query. This feature allows users to control which queries will complete and which queries are cancelled to avoid long wait times, query timeouts, or system impacts.

If you click Cancel Query while the query is running, the status message changes from Query in progress to Last query cancelled. The progress bar stops and any data already loaded to the window remains, until you run the next query.
