Determine if a Splunk daemon is down remotely

Contributor

Hi all,

Is there an easy way to poll for a Splunk daemon's status remotely from C#? The use case is that we are running searches via the SplunkSDK for C#, and we want to display an error message if any of our search peers are down.

Thanks!

Ideally you would use a contructor for "http://{yourserver}:8089/" or "https://{yourserver}:8089/" (depending on whether you are using SSL or not, and if not, why not?).

One of those two will respond with meaningful XML if the service is up, running, and behaving properly.

Of course it goes without saying that if you have changed altered the default port setting you have to account for it.
