Real time dasboard and Saved Search

Explorer

Can I use a Saved Search in a dashboard and display it in Real Time?

Yes. Just make sure when you save that search have the time range set to Real-Time and the desired window of time you want. If an existing search and you want to change the time range just go into manager - searches & reports - select the search and under Start Time you should have something like rt-1m and under Finish Time: rt.

Then you can build a simple dashboard and use that saved search. Here is a link on building simple dashboards.

Ok this sounds like you should try building an advanced dashboard.

http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/4.1.3/Developer/AdvancedDashboard

Below is an example of what I think you could use. This will give you a TimeRange picker that will control the SavedSearch. Let me know if this helps.

  <view template="dashboard.html" refresh="600">
   <label>Title</label>
  <module name="AccountBar" layoutPanel="appHeader"/>
  <module name="AppBar" layoutPanel="navigationHeader"/>
  <module name="Message" layoutPanel="messaging">
    <param name="filter">*</param>
    <param name="clearOnJobDispatch">False</param>
    <param name="maxSize">1</param>
  </module><!-- /message/AppBar/AccountBar -->

  <module name="TimeRangePicker" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1">
   <param name="searchWhenChanged">True</param>

  <module name="HiddenSavedSearch" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1" group="Title" autoRun="true">
  <param name="savedSearch">(your saved search here)</param>

  <module name="Paginator">
      <param name="count">10</param>
      <param name="entityName">results</param>
      <param name="maxPages">10</param>
  <module name="SimpleResultsTable">
  </module><!-- /SimpleResultsTable -->
  </module><!-- /Paginator-->
  <module name="ViewRedirectorLink">
          <param name="viewTarget">flashtimeline</param>
    <param name="popup">True</param>      

  </module><!-- /ViewRedirectorLink--> 
  </module><!-- /HiddenSavedSearch -->

  </module><!-- /TimeRangePicker -->

  </view>

Hell Travis, the problem is that we need also to schedule this search for report delivery. If a use rt, I cannot schedule it. Do you know if there is a way in a dashboard to have the parameters take precedence over the one in the Saved Search?

Hi Travis. It seems to work fine exect I get a big red rubbon error: "Configuration error - HiddenSavedSearch has both parent modules like TimeRangePicker, and also a dispatched job from the scheduler."

Try throwing a false on the next line under the HiddenSavedSearch module.

If nothing else you could always clone/copy the saved search and use that copy to run your dashboard.
