Splunk platform component Supported Required Comments
Search Heads Yes Yes This add-on contains search-time knowledge. It is recommended to turn visibility off on your search heads to prevent data duplication errors that can result from running inputs on your search heads instead of (or in addition to) on your data collection node.
Heavy Forwarders Yes No (but recommended) It is recommended to install this add-on on a heavy forwarder for data collection. Data collection should be configured in only 1 place to avoid duplicates.
Indexers Yes No Not required as the parsing operations occur on the forwarders.
Universal Forwarders No No Universal forwarders are not supported for data collection because the modular inputs require Python and the Splunk REST handler.
