Adjust UI caching to handle large numbers of dashboards

Splunk Enterprise deployments with several hundred or more dashboards might have slower UI performance.

To improve UI performance, increase the default max_view_cache_size setting in the web.conf configuration file. For example, for an instance with 700 dashboards, you can increase this setting to 1000.

For more information, see the web.conf spec file.
