Deployment Architecture

Custom indexes deployed through master-apps not showing in Indexer Clustering: Master Node section

As the title already states, It is expected to lists all indexes and not just internal ones.
I have read in other question that the possible solution is to set replication_factor to auto but not quite sure how to do this, any advise?
There is data in custom indexes, the only issue is that I'm not able to see them in this list.

Thanks in advance.

UPDATE

Tried adding repFactor=auto for each index stanza, didn't work.

Do I have to change the indexes.conf file to _cluster folder? Should I expect everything normal if a delete the custom app and migrate to _cluster?

Hi @rigoreatigax,

Empty indexes do not show up until they get some data. You do not need to do anything special.

You should use monitoring console (or change cm’s monitoring to distributed mode) to see those indexes on cluster. Other option is login to individual peer and check those there from cmd line or via web GUI.

Hi, thanks for your answer, everything is working correctly, except for that part, what I want is to see Bucket status from Master node for those indexes.

Cheers.

I manage to achieve this by copying opt/splunk/etc/master-apps/_cluster/local/indexes.conf to /opt/splunk/etc/system/local/indexes.conf and creating /opt/splunk/var/lib/splunk/test directory locally on the CM. I did restart the CM and also push the bundle

I hope that helps!
