Post Indexer - Order By Meta Value not working

here is my query:

$args = array(
						'posts_per_page' => -1,
						'post_status' => 'publish',
						'post_type' => 'post',
						'orderby' => 'meta_value_num',
						'meta_key' => 'db_views'
						);

					network_query_posts( $args );

the above query pulls no results, but there is most definitely a meta_key for the fields.

Does this functionality work? What am I doing wrong?
