To determine if your deployment has the Classic or Victoria experience, see Determine your Splunk Cloud Platform Experience.

For the Classic Experience:

  1. Disable the "dumpAllThreads" input if enabled, on your Heavy Forwarder (HF) or Inputs Data Manager (IDM) from the user interface.
  2. Upgrade the Splunk add-on for Tomcat to the version 2.1.0.
  3. Restart your Splunk instance.
  4. Enable the "dumpAllThreads" input.
