Splunk Enterprise

dashboard with a multiselect filter for Application Name very slow

Path Finder



I have a dashboard with a multiselect filter for Application Name.

The filter is populated from a lookup that contains more than 2000 different application names.


The query to get the application name is very simple and takes less than a second:

| inputlookup applications.csv

| dedup "App Name"

| sort 0 "App Name"


However – once I click on the filter in order to choose a value – it freezes the dashboard for a while until I can select from the filter.


BTW - I need the option to view all applications by default, so it will not help to add another filter before, that will divide the applications to smaller buckets
