New Member

Hello Everyone

I have Splunk Enterprise installed in a Centos 7 linux OS
I have added csv data and i wish to build a dashboard however when attempting to add a background image i am getting the 503 -service unavailable error

When running the status start  command this is what i get :

When running the status command i get

[root@localhost splunk]# /opt/splunk/bin/splunk status
splunkd is running (PID: 2614).
splunk helpers are running (PIDs: 2640 3079 3140 10111 10113 10144 10155 10172 10692 10808 11367 21735 24183).
