So this means that at the top of the hour 25 saved searches are scheduled to run. (Unless it's 1 AM, then there will be 30). Every half hour there will be 23 searches running, and 3 searches will run at 15 and 45 after.
So what's the recommendation here? Is it expected that the splunk admin of each site modify all these schedules to fit their environment? Or should I be tweaking my limits.conf settings to just hide the issue?
I just recently spent many hours shifting around the times of my custom scheduled searches to avoid this problem. Then I enabled this app, and now I'm back to square one.
I wouldn't modify limits.conf to hide this, as that might cause performance issues. I have the Deployment Server App only running on my Deployment server, so I don't see that many issues with it. I would suggest moving your Deploy Server and the App to a different host (if you can) and see if that helps. Other than that, modify the cron schedule to some off-beat times.
