Getting Data In

Master clustering dashboard - how to get status?

Explorer

On a master node, the clustering dashboard has a column called 'status' for indexers and search heads. They're either 'up', or several other statuses. I would like to write a search that replicates that output, that I can execute every minute or two, so that I can provide an alert if one of the components in my clustered infrastructure fails, so my operations team can remedy the situation. There's even a 'last heartbeat' for index nodes which is at most 5 seconds old - this value would be great too! I want to do the same for the forwarder manager forwarder phone home status too.

Does anyone know which of the million entries in _internal or _audit might help with providing this status? Or is it somewhere else?

Any pointers appreciated, I've been looking at the _internal logs and am going blind. Thanks.

For the cluster peers you can query this endpoint: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.2/RESTAPI/RESTcluster#cluster.2Fmaster.2Fpeers

| rest /services/cluster/master/peers

There's a status field, and a last_heartbeat as well.

Thanks for this. The rest call works for the indexers. Does anyone know the rest call to get the Search Head server statuses (the master server knows about the other instances statuses)?
