About the Content Pack for Unix Dashboards and Reports

The Content Pack for Unix Dashboards and Reports provides reports, alerts, and dashboards for Linux and Unix management. You can monitor and troubleshoot Linux and Unix operating systems of any size, from anywhere.

Content Pack Features

The Content Pack for Unix and Linux Dashboards and Reports contains all the dashboards from the Splunk App for Unix and Linux.

The content pack also includes these features:

Central Visibility Into Operational Health

Get instant visibility into the operational health of Unix and Linux environments. Organize your hosts by groups of services specific to your environment. Use NOC-like dashboards for central insight into problems and visualize resource consumption of selected systems for easy detection of outliers and anomalies.

Performance and Resource Utilization Analytics

Set multiple customizable thresholds for your CPU and memory utilization across your groups of hosts to easily spot trends and spikes in resource utilization in your infrastructure. Isolate problems with configurable statistical comparisons, using 42 important host and OS metrics. Visualize trends and display side-by-side performance comparisons of the several hosts of interest to understand trends, establish baselines and optimize resource allocations. Quickly cross-compare CPU, RAM and disk historical capacity utilization across many different hosts to identify increased resource consumption.

Threshold-Based Alerts

Get real-time notifications of important events from your Unix and Linux environment using the content pack's threshold-based alerts. Quickly assess the business impact of events and conduct remediation actions through insight into snapshots of various OS metrics around the time-specific alert fired. Compare the behavior of hosts in your systems and create long-term trends based on the alerts activity in your environment.
