Splunk is a freakin’ awesome tool. However, I really, really hate how when you select the Search application, it takes you directly to the Summary page. The Summary page is inherently slow and resource intense because it is pulling a high-level view of your Splunk environment.
Well, no longer do you have to wait for the Summary page.
1 – Navigate to: Manager -> User interface -> Navigation menus -> default
2 – move the location of the default from the “dashboard” to the “flashtimeline”
... <view name="dashboard" /> <view name="flashtimeline" default='true' /> ...
3 – Revel in knowing that you no longer see the Dashboard, and now see the Search page by default
