I am monitoring the CPU use of the Splunk UF using WMI on my windows systems I have this search;
this lets me see the Splunk UF CPU use over time for "sys20"
I can make this a dashboard without a problem.
My question is how do I make a dashboard with a pull-down list of "system names" and "Search time" so that I can make the dashboard available for system owners so they can see how much of the CPU resource Splunk is using on there system.
I have been using Splunk for 1 1/2 years and am at version 4.3 but I am not a developer.
Any help would be great.

You need to make a form instead of a dashboard. Oddly enough, I've started building almost the exact form you are, except I ran into a problem using the radial gauge. You can borrow my code and use it as a template, I posted it here: Radial gauge not showing in form on Splunk Answers All you need to do is add the time selection to the fieldset section, and of course, change the queries to match what you want.
Everything there works except for the gauge.
