Splunk Search

Too many search jobs found in the dispatch directory. How to remove old search jobs?

Path Finder

Hi All,

Am getting the error message below:

"Too many search jobs found in the dispatch directory (found=2021, warning level=2000). This could negatively impact Splunk's performance, consider removing some of the old search jobs."

Could you please help me figure out how to clean the jobs that are running and old jobs.

I have tried the splunk cmd splunkd clean-dispatch /opt/splunk/old-dispatch-jobs/ -1month which was suggested by the community but no luck. Please help how to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance!

May be you still have lot many jobs in your dispatch directory. Did you check your dispatch directory and count the total sub directories present there?
