The home dashboard of the the Splunk Deployment Monitor App provides charts with basic stats on index throughput and forwarder connections over time. It also includes warnings for unusual conditions, such as forwarders that appear to be missing from the system or indexers that aren't currently indexing any data.

The charts, warnings, and other information on the home dashboard provide an easy way to monitor potentially serious conditions. The dashboard itself provides guidance on what each type of warning means. For detailed information on warnings, see "Troubleshoot your deployment".

Underneath each chart, there's a link, View results. Click this link to view the raw data behind the chart, as well as the originating search command.

Note: You can modify the underlying searches for any of the charts or warnings. For example, you might want to change the scheduled search frequency to suit your specific needs. To access a chart search, click the View results link below the chart. To access a warning search, click the green arrow to the right of the warning.

In addition to the home dashboard, the app includes several other pages that provide detailed information on indexers, forwarders, source types, and licensing. You can reach these pages from links near the top of the dashboard. See the topic "Drill for details" for information on these pages.

For information on the license usage and license report pages, see the topic "View license usage".
