Deployment Architecture

How do I determine the number of buckets across my indexer cluster?

Is there a command I can execute? Is there an App I can deploy to see this information?

Thank you.

You can use the dbinspect command to get the count of buckets for each indexer.

Here is an example on how to use dbinspect to get the count of buckets by each Splunk server.

| dbinspect index=_internal | stats count by splunk_server

Here is the documentation to provide additional details and examples of using the dbinspect command.

| dbinspect index=* 
| stats count by splunk_server index bucketId 
| fields - count 
| eventstats count(bucketId) As cluster_buckets 
| eventstats dc(bucketId) As num_buckets by index 
| stats Max(num_buckets) As num_buckets Max(cluster_buckets) As cluster_buckets by index
| table index num_buckets cluster_buckets

Run over all time.
