Monitoring Query Performances

The administration console Query Performance page presentsQuery Count and Query Duration dynamic graphs that you can use to easily monitor the query performance in your Coveo Cloud organization along with the volume of queries.

In the page, you can select the data rate (Hourly, Daily, Weekly, or Monthly), the date interval, as well as which data curves are plotted in each graph.

To monitor query performances

  1. If not already done, log in to your Coveo Organization.

  2. In the navigation menu on the left, under Organization, select Query Performance.

  3. In the Query Performance page:

    Admin-QueryPerformance5

    1. In the top right corner of the window, you can click the box containing the actual date range (e.g., Icon-ActualDateRangeb - by default the last 7 complete days) to access the Report Period dialog, and then select the date range you want to review (see Setting the Period to Review Search Usage Data).

    2. In the top left corner of the page, select the periodicity (Hourly, Daily, Weekly, or Monthly).

    3. Next to the Query Duration graph, select the values for which you want to see a curve:

      • Index maximum: Maximum time taken by the index to return search results for a given time period.

        When the selected data rate is Daily, an Index maximum value of 2.3 seconds means it is the longest time the index took to return search results for a query made on that day.

      • Index nth percentile: n% of queries have an index processing duration below this line.

      • Index average: Average index query duration taken to return search results for a given time period.

      • Round trip maximum: Maximum round trip time taken to return search results for a given time period.

        When the selected data rate is Hourly, a Round trip maximum value of 1.2 seconds means it is the longest time taken to return search results for a query made during that hour.

      • Round trip nth percentile: n% of queries have a round trip processing duration below this line.

      • Round trip average: Average round trip duration taken to return search results for a given time period.

        The round trip duration includes all the query processing steps such as user identity validation, query preprocessing, translation to an index understandable query, index processing, and query post-processing.
