Determining the Status of a Mirror/Slice

The statuses of mirrors appear in the Mirrors page of the Administration Tool. There are four statuses:

  • Online
  • In Sync
  • Queries
  • Updates

The statuses of slices appear in the Slices page. There are three statuses:

  • Online
  • In Sync
  • Updates

The statuses of slices are dependent on the statuses of their parent mirrors.

To see the Slice statuses

  1. On the Coveo server, access the Administration Tool (see Opening the Administration Tool).

  2. Access the Mirrors page (Index > Mirrors).

  3. Click the mirror that contains the slice for which you want to see the status.

  4. In the General page that appears, in the navigation panel on the left, click Slices.

    The Slices page appears.

    Refer to the following table for details on each status.

    Status Description
    Online Indicates whether mirrors and slices are online  or offline .
    In Sync Indicates whether mirrors and slices are synchronized  or desynchronized . They are synchronized when pending transactions have been applied to them. To synchronize them, see Applying an Action to a Mirror.
    Queries Indicates whether mirrors accept queries  or not . Offline servers do not accept queries. Moreover, it is recommended to disable queries if servers are desynchronized or do not accept updates because, in such cases, the index content is not up-to-date. To disable queries, see Applying an Action to a Mirror.
    Updates Indicates whether the mirrors accept updates  or not . Offline servers do not accept updates. Moreover, it is recommended to disable updates when the master index is offline to prevent unnecessary connection attempts. To disable updates, see Applying an Action to a Mirror.
