Hello,

I have a problem with finding where in configuration files should I change to enable monitoring console in my distributed environment.
Long story short:
I have distributed environment: a few indexers, a few search heads, cluster node.
I would like to configure for them monitoring console. I can do it via WebUI but in my case I would like to know which configuration file from command line should I edit in order to do the same. Could you help please ?

Hi @xxmazurt,

On which node would you like to setup monitoring console? Because splunk recommend it to setup on standalone search head which is not used for general purpose or you can setup on CM as well if CM is not heavily loaded.

As far as I know Monitoring Console configuration will be in $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local/distsearch.conf and $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_management_console/local/splunk_management_console_assets.conf

EDIT: After changing name from Splunk DMC to Monitoring Console it looks like app name changed from splunk_management_console to splunk_monitoring_console so in that case please check $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_monitoring_console/local/splunk_monitoring_console_assets.conf

Hi harsmarvania57,

Thank you for the answer. I found what I've been looking for at $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_monitoring_console

I have intention to put CM on master node.
