Installing Splunk

This page explains how to install a Splunk server for uberAgent.



Run through Splunk’s setup on the designated Splunk server (in this simple tutorial we assume that you only have a single, Windows-based Splunk server). Choose Local system user when asked for a Splunk user.


Once Splunk is installed: if you have a firewall enabled, make sure that communication is allowed for splunkd.exe and splunkweb.exe (both normally located in C:\Program Files\Splunk\bin). For Windows Firewall the recommended configuration looks like this:


Log On

Log on to the Splunk console by navigating to http://servername:8000 in your browser.


If you plan to use Splunk Enterprise and already have a license, install it through Settings > Licensing. If you do not have a license yet: Splunk runs in Enterprise mode with an allowed daily data volume of 500 MB for 60 days. Then it switches to the free version.
