Hi all,

I had been using splunk for a period of time. However, I notice that the performance started to degrade as more indexes are added.

Do anyone have any recommended script or steps that i can do daily to improved performance.

I had search through this forum, there are many recommendation but mostly are specific to an issue. I am asking for some sort of general maintenance for splunk.

Thanks in advance.

Once you could identify the area of improvement and if it's recurring, you could automate
