What's in the Installation Manual
Note: If you want to install the Splunk universal forwarder, see the Distributed Deployment manual: "Universal forwarder deployment overview". Unlike Splunk heavy and light forwarders, which are just full Splunk instances with some features disabled, the universal forwarder is an entirely separate executable, with its own set of installation procedures. For an introduction to forwarders, see "About forwarding and receiving".
