Getting Data In

splunk saved search behavior in distributed environment

hey guys -

so i have a distributed splunk deployment. i am running an app on the search head (Splunk for WSA) which searches across distributed search peers. there are a whole bunch of saved searches which help paint the main dashboards... i'm just looking to better understand the data flow.

my question is...
does an app / search head always store saved search results on the local machine (i.e. inside the search head's "summary" index?

i half-way expected the summary indexing to occur remotely on the indexer, or at least the search results to be saved somehow to the indexers. sounds kind of silly now that i write it out but you know...

cheers,

andrew

No, the search head gathers and stores all results. If it didn't, you'd be running into problems with how to calculate statistics that could possibly rely on events from other search peers for instance. Same goes for summary indexing.
