Monitoring Splunk

Monitoring Console Health Check does not run

Explorer

I'm trying to run Monitoring Console Health Check but it doesn't start. Splunk shows me only "Loading..." page. The checklist.conf file is ok in default directory. I'm running the brand new version 7.2.4. Can someone help me please?

The problem is most likely that you are clicking on Monitoring Console which is unfortunately always present in the GUI, even though your Search Head is not actually (configured as) a Monitoring Console. Despite how it may appear, it doesn't "just work"; there is some admin-level setup and it MUST NOT be done on a regular Search Head.

Did this problem have any known solution?

Can you check your browser console (press F12 for most browsers) for errors, so we can exclude client / browser / js problems?

Few questions, do you have the admin access and are other components in monitoring console working fine?

Yes for both, I have admin access and other MC dashboards are working fine.

It's likely a permissions issue. Have you tailed the log files while trying to access the health check?

tail -100f $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log
