Splunk Lantern

Measuring memory utilization by host


  • Product: Splunk Enterprise or Splunk Cloud
  • Feature: Search
  • Function: Memory utilization monitoring

This search requires the Splunk Add-on for Microsoft Windows or the Splunk Add-On for Unix and Linux, set up by a system administrator. In addition, the vmstat script must be enabled in your Splunk deployment.


You would like to track memory utilization of operating system processes so that you can troubleshoot or scale systems as needed to avoid latency.
