It would be useful to know whether the indexer is stuck or spinning on a
complex job.

Under Manage Records -> Tasks you can see the list of queued tasks.
Filter it to show "inprogress" items to see what the indexer is running.

To cleanly stop:
./bin/indexer stop

Otherwise kill the process which will leave the broken jobs in an
"inprogress" or "failed" state.
