Create and manage a dashboard using Splunk Light
Dashboards let you easily visualize your data. Dashboards are made up of panels powered by searches, which can display search boxes, fields, charts, tables, and lists.
In this scenario, you construct a dashboard made up of two prebuilt panels, a panel from an inline search, two table panels, and a single value panel. You also learn how to view and edit your dashboard to best fit your needs.
What you need for this scenario
To complete this scenario, first ensure that you have Splunk Light installed and running. You must be using an on-premise version of Splunk Light. Additionally, ensure that you can enable the Splunk Add-On for Unix and Linux.
Complete each of these steps to reach the goal of a completed functional dashboard.
