My first suggestion is to check splunk logs at $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log. Do they suggest anything?

The issue will raise at the time of splunk restart or else in some times due to network outage. Try logging into splunkweb for particular server. If you can able to login ten everything is working properly. Even you can check by loggin into indexers. ( cluster master to check the splunk is up or not)

There sure seems to be a problem. Usually get that when splunk is restarting and therefore is not ready to handle my web requests.

Run in the shell:
splunk status

Should say something like:
splunkd is running (PID: 16691).
splunk helpers are running (PIDs: 16692).
splunkweb is running (PID: 16991).

Have a look at /opt/splunk/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log.

Instance of splunk is running already and it enters into a CLOSE_WAIT state.
So , we need to kill the previously existing Splunk instance in the TASK MANAGER.

Its working now.
