Installing splunk | Information Systems homework help



In this assignment, students will install Splunk Enterprise on their CentOS VM. A typical enterprise deployment will consist of multiple servers for each of the different roles. For instance, large deployments often consist of a cluster of indexers, a cluster of search heads, and then one or more heavy forwarders. Refer to the Instruction located on the Accessing Your Splunk Course Materials page.

For our use case in this course, we will be using a single-instance deployment. This deployment topology is described in the first module of the Splunk Infrastructure Overview course ( to an external site.). That course is free and optional but highly recommended.

Instructions for installing Splunk in your Maryville VM environment are shown below:
