Returns counters for the ThingsDB node in the selected scope. Counters start all at zero when ThingsDB is started, or when the counters are reset by using reset_counters()’.

Counters give information about things, queries and events. If you suspect failed queries, then counters might provide you with more information.

Counter Description
average_event_duration The average event duration in seconds.
average_query_duration The average query duration in seconds.
events_committed Events committed since last counters reset.
events_failed Failed events. This is a critical counter which should be 0.
events_killed Killed events took too long for receiving the READY status. These event may be processed later.
events_quorum_lost Number of times a quorum was not received.
events_skipped Events which cannot be committed since an event with a higher id is already processed. These events are moved to a skipped queue.
events_unaligned Number of times an event cannot be pushed to the end of the queue and needs re-ordering.
events_with_gap Events which are committed but at least one event id was skipped.
garbage_collected Number of things which are garbage collected.
longest_event_duration Longest event duration, in seconds.
longest_query_duration Longest query duration, in seconds.
queries_success Number of queries where this node acted as the master node and the query has successful finished.
queries_with_error Number of queries where this node acted as the master node but the query has returned with an error.
watcher_failed The value is increased if an update could not be forwarded to a registered watcher.

This function does not generate an event.
