Everybody wants this, and until the day when it’s built into the UI somewhere, you can use this little bookmarklet to do it in about a minute.
So. the link below is your friend. (If you’ve used bookmarklets before you know what to do. Otherwise, read on. )
Instead of clicking this link though, right-click it or option click it, and choose ‘bookmark this link’.
splunk 30 second refresh
Once you’ve done that, then whenever you have Splunk loaded, clicking that bookmark will run the tiny little script, and the upshot is that the UI will start autorefreshing in 30 seconds and every 30 seconds thereafter.
And if you want to change the 30 seconds, edit the bookmark, find the 30000 and change it to whatever.
