Monitor the Crawling Module
Once you have completed the Crawling Module deployment process, you can use two tools to monitor the Crawling Module:
A dashboard displaying the state of each component and worker. This dashboard is available at http://localhost:5000/ or any other port selected for Maestro. It is also available from the Windows Start menu (type
Coveo Crawling Module) and from the icon tray (click the Coveo icon).
For more information on the Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module, review the related documentation.
About Crawling Module Updates
On the Crawling Modules Administration Console page, the date under Last update corresponds to the most recent Crawling Module update.
The Coveo On-Premises Crawling Module update process is automatic. This allows you to benefit from the latest features and bug fixes, and prevents the Crawling Module from becoming incompatible with the most recent Coveo Cloud update. Therefore, to stay up to date, the Crawling Module periodically polls Coveo Cloud for a new version. If an update is available, it will be downloaded and installed within 24 hours, at the scheduled update time. The default time is 11:00 PM in the host server’s time zone.
Disconnecting your server from the Internet or shutting it down prevents the Crawling Module from polling Coveo Cloud for updates. Upon the next successful call for an update, if the Crawling Module is two or more versions behind, the workers stop until it is up to date again.
Since the update process is automatic, you don’t need to launch it manually, unless it fails. In such a case, the Crawling Module page reports the issue, and you can either try to update manually or contact the Coveo Support team.
Subscribe to notifications to be informed when the Crawling Module is down or obsolete.

Under the message, the status information allows you to determine at a glance whether your Crawling Module instance is up to date. Each Crawling Module instance is identified by a default name, which you can replace with something more convenient by editing the Maestro configuration of the desired instance.
For each instance, you can review the following information:
Last successful communication: last time the Coveo Platform received a status update from the Crawling Module. The Crawling Module sends a status update every five minutes.
Last update: most recent Crawling Module update.
Associated sources: number of sources paired with this Crawling Module.
Latest version: version number of the most recent update released by Coveo, to be compared with the Reported version.
Reported version: version number reported by the Crawling Module the last time it sent a status update to the Coveo Platform. If it is outdated, you should update it as soon as possible to prevent the Crawling Module from stopping entirely.
