Splunk-optimize Crashes All the time


Since installing Enterprise Security, Splunk-optimize crashes all the time on my machine.
I've tested this on another machine as well.
We are using splunk 6.0.3

I had a similar error on startup. I looked in the splunk logs - %ProgramFiles%\SplunkUniversalForwarder\var\log\splunk\splunkd.log and it turned out to be a completely different issue. It had to do with corrupt permissions on the forwarder input.config files. Just as a pointer to maybe start from the log files and go from there.

Hope this helps someone.

I did not notice it until now, but we have the same issue on our side with 6.2.4.

Tried reinstalling the vcredist package without luck.

Did anyone find a way to fix this?

Or have an idea of the impact?

It seems that there is something wrong with msvcr110.dll module. Since msvcr110.dll is part of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4, when encounter the missing error, you can download and install the VC++ redistributable packages to fix the problem.
Click on the links below to download the package you need:

Good luck.

The splunk-optimize process is using way too much memory in our environment (with ES installed) and is crashing the indexers... were you able to resolve your issue and if so... how?

Per Splunk on my case: The fix will be included in 6.0.6 (and 6.1.2).
