I have a dashboard that has a large number of panels, 18 to be exact. When there is an outage and one of the panels starts counting a large number of events , the rest of the panels are blank on the next refresh.
I didn't have the problem until splunk 6. Is it a bug?
I'm using flash charts in the panels and columns set to 35 bins over 2 hours
the only solution i have found, is to comment out the panels with a large number of events, then the dashboard starts working again which defeats the purpose of the dashboard.
In the conventions of splunk, when one panel have more than 8 searches (more than 8 pipe in the search), this panel will be blank.
Now you have 18 panels and in if i suppose that each search in one panel have one pipe, it means that your page have 18 pipes wich are to more.
I advice you to create others dashboards and put some panels in them so that all your dashboards to run well.
