Dashboards & Visualizations

Statis Photo of a Dashboard

New Member

Dear All,

we are creaing a complex dashboard with a lot of panel in it. So, the time to create the dashboard is very high.

The firts question is: - is it any way to speed up the searches?

And the second is if there any way to create a static dashboard that is created at a specific (every hours, for example) time and then (every time that is looked), when someone open that dashboard, it is prompted with the value of the last time that was calculated?

Thank you

If you're using the simplified XML, and your searches are all saved searches, then if you go into manager and schedule those searches

( http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/User/SchedulingSavedSearches )

Then the dashboards will always show the results from the most recent scheduled search.

In the advanced XML it's the same - using a saved search means you're using the HiddenSavedSearch module, and if you want it to render the data from it's previous scheduled run, you set it's "useHistory" param to "True"
