>> (Get-SPSearchService).JobDefinitions | Select * get the jobdefinition information for the search service

Search topology — consist of one or more Search Service Application (SSA).
Each SSA — contains one or more query components and one or more crawl components.
Each crawl component is associated with one crawl database and crawls the content that is in that database.
Query servers serv the results fquery to the Web Servers, and holde either the entire index or one or more index partitions of the index.
Each index partition includes at least one query component, which services the results for its portion of the index.
