Is my splunk healthy? daily admin procedure wanted

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone here has got a wide range of experience in administrating and maintaining a healthy splunk environment, and would be willing to share some of his/hers best practises.

I just want to learn more about how to keep splunk healthy. Besides the MC (Monitoring Console) and several alerts to reoccurring issues, what do you do on a daily basis, or what did you automated to make sure your environment (costumer environment) is running healthy?

I recently discovered trackme, an app that really helps with the pain of data sources suddendly missing.
(https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/4621/)

Are there any other helpful apps that you would recommend for this kind of purpose?

All kind of ideas/hints are appreciated.

Thank you

Kind Regards

David

Splunk had one inbuilt.

Find the health check at Monitoring Console > Health Check. Start the health check by clicking Start.

It will give you many details you require

Thank you for contributing, but this is not what I was looking for. I am looking for automated ways beside the Monitoring Console.
