Use the tables below to determine where and how to install this add-on in a distributed deployment of Splunk Enterprise or any deployment for which you are using forwarders to get your data in. Depending on your environment, your preferences, and the requirements of the add-on, you may need to install the add-on in multiple places.
Unless otherwise noted, all supported add-ons can be safely installed to all tiers of a distributed Splunk platform deployment. See Where to install Splunk add-ons in Splunk Add-ons for more information.
This table provides a reference for installing this specific add-on to a distributed deployment of Splunk Enterprise.
|Splunk instance type||Supported||Required||Actions required / Comments|
|Search Heads||Yes||Yes||Install this add-on to all search heads where Box knowledge management is required.|
|Indexers||Yes||No||Not required, because the parsing operations occur on the heavy forwarders.|
|Heavy Forwarders||Yes||Yes||Install this add-on on heavy forwarders to perform data collection via modular inputs.|
|Universal Forwarders||No||No||Install this add-on on a heavy forwarder for data collection.|
This add-on can be installed on a search head cluster for all search-time functionality, but configure inputs on forwarders to avoid duplicate data collection.
The Splunk Add-Ons manual includes an Installing add-ons guide that helps you successfully install any add-on to your Splunk platform.
