Hi @vinitpathri ,

it's a best practice that all the Splunk componentes send their logs to Indexers, so if you run a search on Splunk _internal logs, you can have the downtime of a Splunk component.

you could create a lookup (called e.g. perimeter.csv) containing all the servers (in the column host) of your Splunk infrastructure to monitor and run a search like this:

| metasearch index=_internal [ | inputlookup perimeter.csv | fields host ]
| timechart span=10m count BY host
| where count=0
| delta _time AS diff
| where diff=600
| stats sum(diff) AS total BY host
