Use the DMC to view distributed search status
You can use the distributed management console (DMC) to monitor most aspects of your deployment. This topic discusses the Search Activity: Deployment dashboard, which provides insight into your distributed searches.
The primary documentation for the distributed management console is located in Monitoring Splunk Enterprise.
The Search Activity: Deployment dashboard provides a range of useful information about your distributed search environment and processes, such as:
- Search activity for each search head
- Historical charts that provide information on search concurrency and CPU usage over time
The distributed management console provides other dashboards that show search activity for single instances.
View the dashboards themselves for more information. In addition, see "Search activity: Deployment" in Monitoring Splunk Enterprise.
