Couchbase Web Console

The Couchbase Web Console is the main tool for managing the Couchbase environment.

The redesigned 5.0 interface for Couchbase Server’s Web Console offers a new, modern look on usability in a browser-based application. Re-designed for intelligence, comfort, and speed, you will see a clean new look and experience a streamlined interface to Couchbase’s administration and development platform that optimizes your common tasks and workflows.

Some of the more obvious improvements are the modern color palette that shows the condition of your cluster, servers, and services; simplified navigation that lets you know where you are, where you’ve been, and where you might go next; and a responsive layout that fits your browser at any screen size.

When you start the Couchbase Web Console, by default the introductory Dashboard page is displayed.

The Dashboard screen contains three sections: Services, Data Services, and Buckets.


The Services section indicates all running services for the cluster.

ui services
Table 1. Services Details
Field Description

Data Service

The number of data nodes that have data service running.

GSI Service

The number of data nodes that have Indexer service running.

FTS Service

The number of data nodes that have full text search (FTS) service running.

Query Service

The number of data nodes that have query service running.


The number of remote clusters and replications on this cluster.

Data Services

The Data Services section provides information on the memory and disk usage information of your cluster.

ui cluster
Table 2. Clusters Details
Field Description

Data Service Memory section provides a graphical representation of your RAM situation.

total quota

The amount of RAM allocated to data buckets within your cluster.


The amount of RAM not allocated to data buckets within your cluster.


The amount of memory that is unused (available) for storing data.

in use

The amount of memory across all buckets that is actually in use (that is data is actively being stored).

Data Service Disk section provides similar summary information for disk storage space across your cluster.

usable free space

The amount of usable space for storing information on disk. This figure shows the amount of space available on the configured path after non-Couchbase files have been taken into account.


The free space available for storing objects on disk.

other data

The quantity of disk space in use by data other than Couchbase information.

For memory, it is comprised of the memory consumed by all other Couchbase Server processes (beam.smp, memcached, etc.), other processes, and that used by the operating system for disk cache.

in use

The amount of disk space being used to store actively information on disk.


The Buckets section provides the following two graphs:
