Hi,

I have a below code which runs very slow because it is hitting the voluminous index to get the data which takes the huge time to retrieve the data for the particular dashboard ( I am using inline searches ) , Please see the code below :





<!-- Enable the sideview utils -->

<module name="Message" layoutPanel="messaging">
    <param name="filter">*</param>
    <param name="clearOnJobDispatch">False</param>
    <param name="maxSize">1</param>
</module>


<module name="TitleBar" layoutPanel="viewHeader">
    <param name="actionsMenuFilter">dashboard</param>

</module>

  <param name="search">index=os sourcetype=vmstat source=plex earliest=-5m@m latest=now | lookup serverlist host | table server | dedup server | sort str(server)</param>


<module name="Pulldown">

            </module>
          </module>
         </module>
      </module>



      </module>   

      </module> 

  </module>  

I want to use "scheduled saved searches" instead of "inline" and server name should be picked dynamically as it was being picked before ( in the above code )

Please help !!

Search should be saved as
saved_search_name
index=xyz KEY_1=123 KEY_2=456 HOST_NAME=$HOST_NAME$

When using in a dashboard it should be


<input type="text" token="HOST_NAME" searchWhenChanged="false">
<label>Host</label>
<default>*</default>
</input>

| savedsearch saved_search_name HOST_NAME =$HOST_NAME$

This works perfectly

You can try this (untested)

1) create a saved search (say ss_getAvgCPULoadByHost) with following search string

index=os | lookup serverlist host | search $HOST_NAME$ | avg(Percent_CPU_Load) by host_server useother=f limit=0

Have it scheduled as per your need.

2) updated the search parameter for "HiddenSearch" module here, to

| savedsearch ss_getAvgCPULoadByHost HOST_NAME="$HOST_NAME$"

I have removed "search $HOST_NAME$" from my saved search and it worked , but the graph is showing for all the listed items in the menu, Even If I select one or two items from the list, graph is appearing for all the itmes, I want to see the graph only for the selected items.

Please help !!

The above error has gone and now the below has come :

Error in 'savedsearch' command: Encountered the following error while building a search for saved search 'ss_getAvgCPULoadByHost': Error while replacing variable name='host_name'. Could not find variable in the argument map.

In my saved search , I have given the following query :
index=os sourcetype=cpu source=plex | lookup serverlist host | search server=$HOST_NAME$ | multikv fields pctIdle | eval Percent_CPU_Load = 100 - pctIdle | timechart avg(Percent_CPU_Load) by host_server useother=f limit=0
