500 -Splunk Daemon is not responding:


I am getting this error when I load some of my dashboards:

500 -Splunk Daemon is not responding:([Errno 73] Connection reset by peer

It seems to do it when my dashboards have searches that go back 3 or more days. I was wondering if anyone could help me in figuring out why this error keeps occuring.

Sounds like your system is being overloaded when the dashboard is loaded. If the install is on linux you can look to see how many searches are running, ps -ax | grep splunkd, also the top command will show you any load that is going on.

Another search I would also check your metrics.log for any blocked queues. Search for "blocked=true"

I am also seeing error "500 Splunkd daemon is not responding (The read operation timed out)" when search is running and times out? running Splunk version 4.3
