how to know app is synced between deployments-server and clients without RDP nor ssh into client servers

Explorer

i have a deployment-server and 3000 clients, i made changes to one of the app, and it should pushed to all the forwarder agents which is associated with the app.

Here comes my challenge, what if i have no access to those servers at all? No RDP, and no SSH. I got _internal log, how i can tell if the client picked up the changes i made?

All comments and suggestions are welcome, just want to know how people deal with this situation

Thank you! Cheers!

Hi s0rbeto,

index=_internal on your deployment server will provide such information for the last 30 days (that's the default retention for this index). If you search like this:

index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd deployedapplication

you will get a nice bunch of information out of it.

Hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

right, i knew this but lets say you make changes to certain app "Splunk_TA", supposingly the client should pick up whatever changes and restart splunkd. How you can tell if the client already pick up the recently modified changes?
Thanks
