Distributed deployments

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 might need to install the add-on in multiple places.

Where to install this add-on

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 the Splunk platform.

Splunk platform instance type Supported Required Actions required / Comments
Search Heads Yes Yes Install the add-on to all search heads where Splunk add-on for New Relic knowledge management is required.
Indexers Yes No Not required, because the add-on does not include any index-time operations.
Heavy Forwarders Yes Yes This add-on supports only heavy forwarders for data collection.
Universal Forwarders No No This add-on does not support universal forwarders for data collection.
Light Forwarders No No This add-on does not support light forwarders for data collection.

Distributed deployment feature compatibility

This table describes the compatibility of this add-on with Splunk distributed deployment features.

Distributed deployment feature Supported Actions required
Search Head Clusters Yes You can install the add-on on a search head cluster for all search-time functionality, but configure inputs on forwarders to avoid duplicate data collection.
Before installing the add-on to a cluster, make the following changes to the add-on package:
  • Remove all files in the samples folder.
  • Remove the eventgen.conf files.
Indexer Clusters Yes Before installing the add-on to a cluster, make the following changes to the add-on package:
  • Remove all files in the samples folder.
  • Remove the eventgen.conf files.
Deployment Server No Supported for deploying unconfigured add-ons only.
  • Using a deployment server to deploy the configured add-on to multiple forwarders acting as data collectors causes duplication of data.
  • The add-on uses the credential vault to secure your credentials, and this credential management solution is incompatible with the deployment server.
