Jul 27th, 2016: Layer8Insight App for Splunk v1.0.2 Released

The Layer8Insight App for Splunk has been updated to version 1.0.2 and is posted on Splunkbase. No new dashboards were added, but there were significant changes made to a few. The biggest change is a total redesign of the User Activity Summary dashboard, including a whole new top-level aggregate section and drilldowns.  Also, this release includes small changes to remove deprecated features from versions pre-6.3. The only noticeable change will appear on Single Value panels if you are running Splunk 6.2.
The Layer8Insight Indexer App for Splunk was updated to version 1.1.1 with only changes to documentation and comments. The props.conf file includes a section that shows how to dynamically remove underused fields and thereby decreasing the indexing volume.
If the Layer8Insight Apps for Splunk are already installed in your environment, neither of these updates should require additional steps or changes before or after installation.
