Splunk® Metrics Workspace (Legacy)

Using the Splunk Metrics Workspace

About the Splunk Metrics Workspace

The Splunk Metrics Workspace provides a user interface that enables you to monitor and analyze metrics and other time series without using SPL. Select data sources to create interactive charts in the workspace. Then, apply filters and aggregations to gain insight into your system's metrics and performance. The Splunk Metrics Workspace helps you to quickly identify and respond to any issues or anomalies in your data.

Metrics Workspace functions and operations

The Metrics Workspace comes with a set of analytic functions and operations to help you make sense of your data. These functions generate SPL in the background.

Depending on your data source, the following operations are available.

  • Aggregations summarize data points into meaningful values.
  • Time shifts modify the time range of a series.
  • Splits show results for a specific dimension.
  • Filters include or exclude certain results.

After refining your data, use the Metrics Workspace to perform the following actions in Splunk.

  • Set up an alert to be notified of certain behavior in your data.
  • Create a dashboard to monitor or share your findings.
