We are using elastic search in our store but I am not convinced that all the results are served from elastic search. Is there a tool/feature where we can monitor activity in elastic search server just like MONITOR on redis-cli, or access logs on apache?

We are using the Magento commerce cloud, but I would be open to tools not provided in commerce cloud stack as well to monitor things at least on dev machines.


I apologise if it wasn't clear from my examples but I want real time monitoring of requests served from elastic search to confirm that the search results are served from elastic search in my store.

  • That’s a good question. I have the same situation. Will try to check it. Commented Nov 29, 2019 at 23:37

I think you should using magento-cloud ssh and ssh to Magento Cloud Node such as production, staging

Using CURL to check Elasticsearch result Elastic search document << here,

example: I want to get all product are belongs to Category 3

  curl -X GET 'ip:port/[index]/_search?pretty' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -d '{
  "query": {
    "bool": {
      "must": [
          "term": {
            "category_ids" : "3"
  "from": 0,
  "size": 10000

How can you get list of [index] please using

curl -x GET '[ip]:[port]/_cat/indices?v'

Elasticsearch Indexes

Absolutely you are also want to know product count, please using "size": 1

You can debug into vendor/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/src/Elasticsearch/Client.php:952 to dump query params are using on your project.

Update 2:

  • You can using Elasticsearch Tool Box (Chrome Ext), connect to Cloud Server using SSH Tunnel.
  • How to monitor it on local? Commented Nov 30, 2019 at 5:06
  • Please using elasticsearch-toolbox (Chrome Ext), or using terminal as I mentioned.

    Just an FYI, if anyone needs a GUI for monitoring elasticsearch indices etc use "elasticvue" chrome extension instead. It has a lot more features and a better ui. Commented Dec 2, 2019 at 11:37
