Monitoring Splunk

Deployment monitor accelerated searches not working at all?



I have a couple of servers that were 4.x and I updated them to 5.0.2. I also installed the latest Deployment Monitor application.

However, now accelerated searches are not working at all. In Manager -> Report Acceleration Summaries they are all listed like this:

    0.0000  0 Last Access: Never    Summarization not started Updated: Never

    0.0000  0 Last Access: Never    Summarization not started Updated: Never

If I go to a search in Manager -> Searches and reports and select one (for example sourcetypes_summary_10m) I can see that the search is:


And it's accelerated to 3 months summary range. However, when I click on Save I get the following error:

Encountered the following error while trying to update: In handler 'savedsearch': This search cannot be accelerated

Checking the macro it looks ok. Puzzled. 😕

See "How Searches Qualify for Acceleration". I was having this same issue... to accelerate the search has to chart/stat/table/etc... not just return a set of events.

I suspect you might be hitting a bug in Splunk core that can cause report acceleration not to function as expected. Have you opened a support case yet?
