Allows you to quickly and easily analyze utilization in your Splunk environment. Use it proactively for capacity planning, or reactively to diagnose the cause of a license warning before it becomes a violation.
Additional features, dashboards, and reports will be added in future versions. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any feature requests or bug reports.
In a master-slave setup, SUM should be installed on the license master, or on a system that is configured to perform distributed search across any peers that would have index=_internal files.
Users of this app need to be able to search index=_internal. This can be done using the admin user account, or may be added to a role by an admin by going to Settings -> Access controls -> Roles -> (Your Role) and adding the "_internal" to the "selected search indexes" under the "Indexes" section. Users of this app also need to have REST capability. The "admin" role with default settings is fully supported by this app.
Several new dashboards and features. Install and take a look at the Home page!
