Shows statistics related to the node warmup.


The basic syntax is:

cbstats [host]:[dataport] -b [bucket_name] -p [bucket_password] raw warmup


If a Couchbase Server node is starting up for the first time, it creates any database files that are necessary and begins serving data immediately. However, if there is already data on the disk, usually because the node rebooted or the service restarted, the node needs to read all of this data of the disk before it can begin serving data. This process is called warmup and it can take some time depending on the size of the data.

The information about server warmup includes the status of warmup and whether warmup is enabled. The bucket must be specified for the bucket statistics; it does not need to be specified if the default bucket statistics is requested.

The following statistics are of particular interest when monitoring the warmup:

The overall indication of whether or not warmup is still running. Look for values: running and complete.
This describes which phase of warmup is currently running. Look for values: loading keys, loading access log, and done.
  • When ep_warmup_state is loading keys, compare ep_warmup_key_count (current number) with ep_warmup_estimated_key_count (target number).
  • When ep_warmup_state is loading access log, compare ep_warmup_value_count (current number) with ep_warmup_estimated_value_count (target number).
Table 1. cbstats warmup stats
Statistic Description Value Type
ep_warmup Shows if warmup is enabled /disabled. String values: enabled or disabled
ep_warmup_dups Number of failures due to duplicate keys. Integer
ep_warmup_estimated_key_count The estimated number of keys in database. Integer. Default: unknown
ep_warmup_estimate_time Thne estimated time in microseconds to do warmup. Integer.
ep_warmup_estimated_value_count The estimated number of key data to read based on the access log. Integer. Default: unknown
ep_warmup_keys_count Number of keys warmed up. Integer
ep_warmup_keys_time Total time (in microseconds) spent by loading persisted keys. Integer
ep_warmup_min_items_threshold Enable data traffic after loading this percentage of key data. Integer
ep_warmup_min_memory_threshold Enable data traffic after filling this % of memory. Integer (%)
ep_warmup_oom Number of out of memory failures during warmup. Integer
ep_warmup_state The current state of the warmup thread. String
ep_warmup_thread Warmup thread status. String values: running or complete
ep_warmup_time Total time spent by loading data (warmup). Integer (microseconds)
ep_warmup_value_count Number of values warmed up. Integer
