We are working on something new...

A Fresh New Splunkbase
We are designing a New Splunkbase to improve search and discoverability of apps. Check out our new and improved features like Categories and Collections. New Splunkbase is currently in preview mode, as it is under active development. We welcome you to navigate New Splunkbase and give us feedback.

Search Log Processing

This app has been archived. Learn more about app archiving.
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
For comparing indexer performance, understanding operators, or log levels (INFO .. CRIT), you have to leverage search.log. Indexing it isn't scalable though. This app will, every five minutes, launch a scripted input that will review the local dispatch directory for any search.log files, and the parse out the details into a JSON blob that will be put in index=_internal.

Details so far:
* Per Search Peer: # of Results
* Per Search Peer: Amount of time reported
* Time to set up search peers
* Count by log level of the search (e.g., INFO / WARN / ERROR / FATAL)
* Count by log operator of the search (e.g., “SearchOperator:kv” vs LMConfig)
* Time taken per operation (e.g., how many slow operations were there, how many fast ones — this can help identify particularly expensive regex / eval, etc.)
* SearchID
* Time Run

Overall, this should allow some trending information, and specifically to be able to detect an indexer that is slower than the rest.

Release Notes

Version 1.0
Jan. 22, 2016

Tested in a few environments, but not extensively and no dashboards are yet present. Look for a 2.0 release in the next few weeks with dashboards. If you run it and would like me to build dashboards for you, please email me.
