Indexing performance: Deployment

This topic is a reference for the Indexing performance: Deployment dashboard in the distributed management console. See “About the distributed management console.”

What does this view show?

Several panels about indexing performance across your Splunk Enterprise deployment.

Interpret results in this view

In the Overview of Indexing Performance panel, total indexing rate is summed over all indexers.

In the Instances by Estimated Indexing Rate panel, the indexing rate is estimated because it uses metrics.log, which takes only the top ten results for each type by default. See "About metrics.log" in the Troubleshooting Manual.

Troubleshoot this view

The snapshot panels get data from Splunk REST endpoints for introspection. If snapshot panels lack data, check

  • the system requirements for platform instrumentation.
  • the pipelinesets setting in server.conf. When pipeline sets are used (that is, if pipelinesets is set to a value greater than 1), some panels of the DMC indexing performance dashboards will be blank.

The historical panels for this view get data from metrics.log.
