Dashboards & Visualizations

How can I display website http status as a colour coded dashboard item?

I am new to Splunk. I am working on a dashboard that displays data from all the primary endpoints within our production stack. On this dashboard I will like to show the http status of all of our websites, preferably in a colour coded format (e.g. 404, 503 would be red, 200 would be green etc).

I have been messing around with the search function and reading some forums but I am unable to find out how to do this. It would essentially just be a curl -v (?) of the website and a grep of the status.

Ideally the data would be displayed in a dashboard like this:

www.website1.com = STATUS | www.website2.com = STATUS | etc.

Thanks for your help.

I've seen this option in a dashboard used in by the Nest Home Thermostat app.
https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1729/#/overview

Edit source of the Dashboard and try dropping in.

<option name="charting.seriesColors">[0x007eff,0xff8400,0x6fd600,0xd3d3d3]</option>

OR

<option name="charting.gaugeColors">[0xFFFFFF,0x6cb8ca,0x7e9f44,0xd13b3b]</option>

with the other panel options. See if you can tweak it to make it work for you.

Would you be displaying it as a single value visualization or something else?

This is a copy paste from another answer but

Option 1: range map in a table
See the Splunk dashboard example app https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1603/ for some examples of how to do this. Specifically, you will want to check out “Table Icon Set (Rangemap)”.

Option 2: use custom CSS

Additionally, in the format tab in the single value visualization there is a colors option where you can select ranges, its not set for single number values but if you add multiple ranges it should be good. (I post this as a comment not an answer because I don't have enough karma to post more replies today)

Yes as a single value for each website. So they'd display at 200 in green, or 404, 503 etc in red.
