The best way is to install the Splunk-TA Common-viz which contains a big collection of visualizations in one TA.
Download and install it from Github: https://github.com/Splunk-App-and-TA-development/Splunk_TA_common-viz
You need to adapt the path of the visualization in the dashboard named

This TA exposes potentially sensitive information to users.
This includes any passwords/tokens/usernames contained within conf files on the instance.
We highly recommended to allow the access soley to administrators to index this TA uses to prevent information disclousre to unauthorised parties.
