Check your search head activity and number of jobs in the dispatch directory, in my case in url for splunk console *app/search/scheduleruserapp?form.group_by=user&form.span=4h&earliest=-7d%40h&latest=now I found out an extensive realtime search of one user was causing timeouts on searches. That may cause a load which skips searches and alerts?
