how to find out scripts running on indexers

Path Finder


Is there a way to find out the scripts running by users on indexers because few backs when i ask a user , he told that he ran it on search head but actually that script is running on indexers . So, how to find out the scripts running on indexers that were created by users . i know splunk base apps will be running shell scripts but i want to ignore them.

Try this:

index="_internal" sourcetype="splunk_python"

I assume you mean saved searches.

Try this to start with:

index=_internal source="*scheduler.log" savedsplunker | stats count BY user, savedsearch_name, host

Run it with a time range of maybe a week.
