Atlas Version 2022.3.3

Atlas V2022.3.3 brings significant enhancements to the Data Utilization, Scheduling Assistant, and STIG Compliance elements.

  • Data Utilization has been optimized to to increase stability and improve performance in most Splunk environments. With the previous version, in some Splunk environments, this element did not perform as expected. The new version requires additional configuration steps that must be completed prior to use. A Configuration validation page has been added to simplify the setup of the element to help you get Data Utilization up and running quickly. Expertise on Demand is available to help you upgrade this element if you encounter any issues.

  • Scheduling Assistant has been redesigned to address performance issues and will perform better now in most Splunk environments. The most significant change to Scheduling Assistant is that scheduled search triage is easier than ever before using the new user interface. Users can quickly find the problematic searches in their environment because Scheduling Assistant will automatically identify them for you. The search schedule modeling and automated search updates are still available but have been optimized to help you find better search windows faster and easier. You can also now see the SPL of the search along with the associated performance metrics.

  • STIG Compliance has been enhanced to bring massive speed improvements throughout the entire element. These performance increases should be noticeable on most user interfaces when loading data and visualizations. These performance improvements impact how the state data is stored in Splunk so there is an extra step required to perform an upgrade between older versions and the new version. Be sure to reach out to the Expertise on Demand team to get assistance with the upgrade procedures.
