Determine which version of Splunk Enterprise you're running

In Splunk Web

Click the About link at the bottom left of most pages in Splunk Web to view a JavaScript overlay with the version and build numbers.


At the command line

Use one minus or two minuses; Splunk gets it either way:

> ./splunk --version
Splunk 6.0 (build 181491)


> ./splunk -version
Splunk 6.0 (build 181491)

From the files

You can get the version information from the file $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/splunk.version

> cat $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/splunk.version 

In Splunk Search

Splunk Enterprise indexes the splunk.version file into the _internal index and sends it along to the indexer by forwarders.

Here's a search that shows you how many installs you have of each Splunk Enterprise version:

index=_internal sourcetype=splunk_version | dedup host | top VERSION
