hostwide component in resource_usage.log

Contributor

What exactly is the hostwide component in below.

It is reporting the very high utilization of memory & subsequently the Splunkd process crashes.

The issue goes away on VM restart, but slowly hits saturation again in around a day..

Is it process in Splunk itself or is it a nix process.

It states: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/Troubleshooting/Whatdatagetslogged
host-level, dynamic CPU utilization and paging information.

Not much description here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/RESTREF/RESTintrospect#server.2Fstatus.2Fresource...

@stanwin,

Hostwide component shows the operating system resource usage for the entire host (i.e., all system and user processes).
You might need to look at the system for resource utilization of individual process to see what's contributing to this overall host utilization using top or similar commands.
