Reporting

Looking for Report Acceleration info in _internal

Legend

For my report acceleration summaries, I can see some statistics in the Splunk Manager. I've read the manual section on Manage Report Acceleration, so I know about the Summarization Load statistic and how it is calculated.

My question is: can I find out more about when the summarization tasks actually run behind the scenes, and how much load that is causing on my indexers? I browsed through the _internal index, but I didn't find anything obvious.

Where is creation/maintenance of report acceleration summaries logged?

You can look at the logs on the server for some minor bit more data about the job, or you can do a search like:

index=_audit user=yourusername

that will get you some information if you know the username but not the jobid. If you know the jobid, you can try (example shows a real jobid, but replace with the correct one for your search):

index=_audit *1375207557.136764*

You might need to cull out splunkweb accesses by adding:

...  NOT *POST* NOT *GET*

Otherwise, you can get the same information from the logs:

grep 1375207557.136764 $SPLUNKHOME/var/log/splunk

Also, I found some intersting things using:

index=_* *summary*
