Using the CES Console

The CES Console shows the activities of the CES service in a window. It displays useful real-time information such as connection, crawling, and indexing operations. The CES Console is a helpful tool for monitoring and troubleshooting purposes.

To use the CES Console

  1. Access the CES Console (Windows Start menu > All Programs > Coveo Enterprise Search 6 > CES Console).

    By default, the CES Console automatically connects to the local default Coveo instance. Activities appear in the window in real-time when CES settings are modified or indexing and querying activities take place.

    Note: When you click in the CES Console window, the scrolling pauses. Press the ESC key on the keyboard to resume scrolling.

  2. You can refine the activities appearing in the window using the parameters available in the Filter section.

  3. When the CES Console is not connected, click Connect. You can also connect to other Coveo servers by clicking Disconnect and then Connect.

  4. In the Connect dialog box:

    1. Beside Connect to, select the type of Coveo server to which you want to connect.

    2. In the Server drop-down list, select the Coveo server to which you want to connect. Choose localhost to see activities of the local Coveo server.

    3. In the Instance drop-down list, when more than one Coveo instance is available on the selected server, select the appropriate Coveo instance.

    4. If the instance uses a port other than the default port (52800), select the appropriate value in the Port drop-down list (see About the CES Service Port).

    5. Click OK.
