Query Statistics Field Descriptions

Review a summary of the customer administrator query statistics fields and some possible failure message cases.

Each query stats entry contains a set number of fields that describe properties of the query. Some of the contents are lower-level and are helpful for the ChaosSearch team when troubleshooting queries. Other fields are higher-level and can be useful for a customer administrator. The following table describes the customer administrator fields.




User executing the query


The maximum worker quota for the principal executing a query


Percentage of the query serviced from cache versus from object storage


The actual elastic query executed. This can include one or many requests.


Unique ID for the query. This can be provided to ChaosSearch if there are questions about a particular query.


Completion message of the query, success or failure explanation. See Expected "Failed" Query Scenarios for a list of messages.


Status of the query, which can be success or failed


The total number of segments read to service the query



Two measures of total time spent completing and rendering the data in Kibana


The view against which the query was executed


Timestamp at which the query was executed. This can be different than the log record timestamp.


Time in milliseconds spent resolving the schema of all indexes required to service the request


Time in milliseconds spent parsing the query


Time in milliseconds spent planning optimal query execution


The total wall clock time in milliseconds spent executing the query


The pool of workers to service the query. The majority of customers have a single pool called "Default."


The aggregated time in milliseconds spent by all workers servicing the query

Expected Failed Status Scenarios

There are certain situations in which a query can have a "failed" status for an expected and non-problematic cause.

Relevant Fields


QueryStats.context.task_queue_message: "chaossumo.dataedge.DataEdgeWorkerPool$InsufficientWorkersError$: Capacity limit reached. Please wait for pending tasks to complete."

QueryStats.context.task_queue_status: failed

QueryStats.message: started

TaskStats.state: Done(Complete)

A capacity limit reached message can happen when there are no available workers to serve a query because of other indexing and query activity. Consider clicking Burst to add temporary additional workers. However, if these errors persist, contact your Customer Success engineer.

QueryStats.context.task_queue_message: chaossumo.orchestration.TaskManager$ManagedTaskCanceled$: Task cancelled

QueryStats.context.task_queue_status: failed

QueryStats.message: Query completed

TaskStats.state: Done(Canceled)

A "task cancelled" error can occur after an explicit cancellation or if a user starts a new query while a previous one was running (a principal can have one query running at a time). For example, when a user submits Query 1, navigates to another page or tab, and submits Query 2 before Query 1 is completed, Query 1 will be canceled and Query 2 will start running.

QueryStats.message: pending

TaskStats.state: Done(Canceled)

Similar to the "task cancelled" error condition, this condition occurs when the original query is in a slightly different state.
