The system automatically performs a diagnostic on your Alibaba Cloud Elasticsearch cluster. This diagnostic is performed every morning. After the diagnostic is complete, a diagnostic report is generated. In addition to the daily diagnostic, you can use the Cluster Diagnosis feature to manually diagnose your Elasticsearch cluster. You can use this feature to diagnose a cluster for up to five times a day. Each diagnostic requires about three minutes.
