Jun 24th, 2016: Updated Layer8Insight Splunk Apps

OctoInsight Inc. is delighted to announce that updates to both Layer8Insight apps for Splunk are posted on Splunkbase.
If you already have Layer8Insight Apps for Splunk installed, neither of the following updates should require additional steps or changes before or after installation over existing deployments.
The Search-head/Dashboard app has the most significant changes. No new dashboards were added. The changes centered around bug fixes, optimizations, and cleanup.  The app has been tested up to the latest version of Splunk, 6.4.1, across the primary browsers.
The Indexer app's only change is to overwrite the 'host' metadata field with the ComputerName field in raw Layer8 data. This has no direct impact on the packaged dashboards; however, it should improve search performance with future changes and when looking for data across multiple indexes.
