Knowledge Object Overview App for Splunk

Splunk Cloud
Splunk Labs
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
Overview
Details
This app provides a knowledge object (KO) usage overview. The app highlights KO usage, what is being used and what is no longer used. Splunk admins can review what KO are used, how often and the resource consumption over time. The app currently focuses on Dashboards and Reports/Alerts but also shows details for lookups and macros.

In addition, the app allows admin to review KO change actions for audit purposes.

Key features:
* Overview of Dashboard, Reports, Lookups and Macro usage. Highlighting both active and inactive assets.
* Reporting of all change actions to KOs by users, based on the audit index.
* Reporting of Dashboard executions and resource consumption to identify resource hungry dashboard and analyse cause.
* Reporting of Report executions and resource consumption to identify resource hungry dashboard and analyse cause.
* Dashboard and Report view statistics over time. Identify the most active KOs who they are used by.

Summary:

The app highlights knowledge object usage and change. Splunk admins can review what KO are used, how often and the resource consumption over time. The app currently focuses on Dashboards and Reports/Alerts but also shows details for lookups and macros.

Known issues:

  • This app is impacted by a SPL xpath command bug (SPL-195545) found in 8.0.x. As a workaround you can switch this app to use python.version = python 2 for the purpose of your testing. Or to be more targeted you can add a command.conf into splunk_kom/local with the following stanza.

[xpath]
filename = xpath.py
streaming = true
retainsevents = true
overrides_timeorder = false
supports_rawargs = true
is_risky = false
python.version = python2

This will simply force the xpath command to run under python 2
