There is no "search head clustering" below "settings" in my SH cluster member's web

Explorer

I have built an SH cluster and an indexer cluster with Splunk 6.5.4 . I would like to monitor SH cluster via Splunk web.

I followed the following document (I note it's a Splunk 7.0 document)

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.1/DistSearch/SHCsettings

But below DISTRIBUTED ENVIRONMENT of settings on my SH captain (a static captain than dynamic captain), there is no "search head clustering" at all, instead, there are 3 menu items, which are Indexer clustering, Forwarder management and Distributed search.

I can list my SH cluster details properly via CLI, e.g. splunk show shcluster-status and splunk list shcluster-members.

Is monitoring SH cluster via Splunk web available in Splunk 6.5? How to enable it?

hello there,

the only GUI indication that you have a SHC is that the settings menu is not full (although you can click on an icon that will enable it)
also, if using a load balancer, your url will be different then the host you are on (help button and then about button)
not sure what do you mean by monitoring the SHC but if you would like to see metrics about replication, long searches and SHC health, use the MC (Splunk monitoring console)

hope it helps

I have clicked "show all menus", I also walked through my SH captain and SH peer one by one, only saw Distributed search but not Search Head Clustering in the menu.

Yes, I want to monitor SHC metrics. Splunk web would be much easier than CLI.

My SH does not have MC(Splunk monitoring console), only indexer cluster member has MC.

How to enable MC on SH member?
