How to enable caching of dashboard panels?

Builder

We have multiple charts in a dashboard and its taking long time to update the panels. but we want to use some caching to show the previously viewed/created charts instead of re-generating the data. Can you please tell us how to enable the cache to avoid this slowness / re-generation.

Update :

We are using pivot table to build the dashboard. can you please tell us how can we achieve in this case.

Check if you can accelerate your data model. This means that some parts of the search will be pre-computed and stored, so the search that builds the dashboard panel will be faster.

Hello,
This is pretty easy. Use the saved searches. Schedule them for particular or desired period. Use the pre-run data over and over without triggering a new search for multiple users.

Thanks,

There is no parameter which we can use in splunk 6 dashbaord. So as a workaround just replace the |loadjob command instead of search string.

->Create the savedsearch and schedule them to run at your desired interval
-> Create the dashbaord.
-> Replace the search with | loadjob savedsearch="User:search:SavedSearch_name"

User: the user which owns the savedsearch
SavedSearch_name : this will be savedsearch name
