SplunkEnterpriseSecuritySuite: Why is correlation search next scheduled time in the past?

Path Finder


What could be the explanation for a Correlation Search that is set to run live, on the Next Scheduled Time tab in /app/SplunkEnterpriseSecuritySuite/ess_content_management it appears that the Next Scheduled Time to be in the past. (today is 3rd of march) This is also not triggering any events in the Incident Review Tab in Enterprise Security app.



Thanks to anyone that can give any hints

check the search. It’s it set to continuous mode in the correlation search settings? If yes. Then look in job activity at a recent run. Most likely your search takes longer to complete than the scheduled interval. This causes the backsliding in time. Rewrite the search to be more efficient and complete within the desired window.
