Splunk Enterprise

Splunk - memory usage, how to optimize ?



we have a cluster environment with 6 indexers. Each host has 128GB Ram, but as I see Splunk using only ~4GB.

Is there any chance to optimize (speedup) memory usage and let splunk to use for example 100GB of RAM ?


I have tons of different indexers with different dashboards ....

If yes, how to do it ?
