Meaning of the fields in _cat/nodes request?

For a particular node in my ES cluster, I get the following value:

Value Option
0 INDEXING_DELETE_CURRENT
43.9s INDEXING_DELETE_TIME
0 INDEXING_INDEX_CURRENT
2.1h INDEXING_INDEX_TIME
0 SEARCH_FETCH_CURRENT
8ms SEARCH_FETCH_TIME
0 SEARCH_QUERY_CURRENT
103ms SEARCH_QUERY_TIME
Why is INDEXING_INDEX_TIME like 2 hrs? Does this indexing is taking 2 hours? I can't understand what those values mean for that particular node?

It’s mentioned here - https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.1/cat-nodes.html

Time spent in indexing

I had gone though that but I was not sure if it is like the sum of all times spent indexing since the creation of that node? or index?
An indexing operation taking 2 hours was not sounding correct to me.
Are all the options I mentioned in the question a cumulative value over a time window?

It’s cumulative.
