I deployed the VMWare app on my lab environment according to the documentation and the YouTube video, or at least I tried to, but it seems that I made a mistake somewhere.
My setup includes a Search Head, an indexer, one DCN, one vsphere server (v6.0) with three esxi hosts, and a total of 46 VMs. I try to collect esxi and vsphere log data, which works fine, and API data.
On the home dashboard, the panels "Virtual Machine Health", "Host System Health" and Recent VMware Alarms are only returning No Data or No results found. While I do get quite some data of the type vmware:inv* (e.g. 500 events of sourcetype vmware:inv:vm in 24 hours) there are only five entries with sourcetype vmware:perf* and none of the other api sourcetypes.
In the Collection Configuration screen, the DCN shows up as green. The VCenter Credential Validation is also okay.
In the lab environment I also use the Splunk App for NetApp Data ONTAP, but two different DCNs. Is it possible that these two are interfering with each other?
Thanks in advance
Can you check configurations of your DCN machine?
- Number of CPU cores defined
- Number of worker processes enabled on scheduler.
Also try accessing this link:
Did you get a resolution for this issue ?
I have the same issue where none of the Dashboards related to Perf data show anything. We recently upgraded to version 3.2.1
Please let me know. Thank you.
Yes. I tried some other stuff like moving the whole setup into a different virtual environment but this didn't help either.
I think i will follow kserra's suggestion and open up a support case.
The splunk app for netapp is made to work with the vmware app (they share some dashboard information). As long as your DCNs are separate you should be ok.
I would check the following:
Were the default credentials for the DCN altered?
Was the splunk_vmware_admin user role updated
It sounds like the DCN is not polling data and that is probably the source of your issues. If the above suggestions don't help then please open up a support case.
