External Ports

The following are ports used by end users outside of the cluster. Not all cluster nodes need to be exposed, but the node externally accessible needs to have the following ports open.

Port Description
30000 DSP UI. The port used to host the Splunk Data Stream Processor UI.
31000 API Gateway. The port used to connect to the Splunk Data Stream Processor API Services.
30002 Authentication. The port used to authenticate and login to the Splunk Data Stream Processor UI.
30001 Optional. Used by the Splunk Forwarder service to send data from a Splunk forwarder to a data pipeline.


If firewalld is enabled in the system, Kubernetes services may not be able to communicate under default configuration. See the Gravitational documentation about firewalld.

IPv4 Forwarding

IPv4 forwarding on servers is required for internal Kubernetes load balancing and must be enabled for all nodes. For more information, see IPv4 Forwarding in the Gravity documentation.
