a-splunking we will go
is just out, and I thought I'd give it a go. I've just finished downloading the thing on to one of our servers. It is now 23:47 and the download took a whole 3 minutes.
I'm doing the "look mom, no wires" installation kind, no manual, no nothing, just to see how it goes.
we start off by chmod a+x splunk-2.0.1-linux-installer.bin , and then ./splunk-2.0.1-linux-installer.bin
Licenses... oh well... let's just say "yes", shall we?
The defaults are pretty sensible for a test install. The only thing I changed was where it asked me how much free space to leave on the device.
It seems to be installed and running, and the whole process took less than 10 minutes, download included.
I'll let you know in the morning how fun it is to use.
