Splunk Performance & Capacity Analytics Overview


Splunk Performance & Capacity Analytics Overview

The Splunk Performance and Capacity Analytics (PCA) element was designed to provide a single-pane-of-glass view into the status and historical performance trends of a Splunk Enterprise deployment. It includes many of the most useful metrics available in the Splunk Monitoring Console, and several essential views it does not provide, without having to find and open numerous views or other dashboards.

This Atlas element provides a quick status view of the most critical performance metrics for a Splunk implementation (availability, indexing and replication integrity, CPU, memory, disk usage and IOPS, and many more) which can easily be checked periodically to stay ahead of developing issues. Any Splunk administrator will want to make this element part of their daily workflow so that they can periodically monitor the health of Splunk from one place.
