Monitor services and hosts in Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring ๐Ÿ”—

See the following pages for more information about using navigators to monitor public cloud, container, or host integrations:

Splunk Observability Cloud also provides metrics and other data for the following host and application monitors.

Displayed data: Traffic considerations ๐Ÿ”—

  • Information is displayed only if data is streamed in. If thereโ€™s no data coming in from a stream for more than 3 hours, that stream stops being counted in Observability Cloud.

    • Kubernetes monitoring holds tiles in a deactivated state until it goes inactive, which happens 25 hours after the last data point is received.

  • Some metrics, like those related to CPU utilization, are always reported. Observability Cloud uses these metrics on the Navigator summary page.

  • A few metrics are not sent continuously. For example, metrics related to the number of errors are only sent when errors happen.

    • Donโ€™t try to get a list of entities using one of the few metrics not sent continuously, because entities with no errors might be hidden.

  • Counts are sensitive to the time range, the calculated resolution of the job that runs, and the frequency of the data that is coming in.

    • A typical cloud integration reports a new data point every 5 minutes.

    • As the job is running, reporting instances that are turned off drop off after the time range that they are part of passes.
