Other deployment considerations
This topic covers important considerations you should review and understand before proceeding with a production Splunk deployment.
The Deployment Monitor requires a small amount of additional storage to accommodate the report acceleration summaries that it creates from existing data.
To determine the size of the report acceleration summaries created by the Deployment Monitor, use Splunk Manager:
1. Go to Manager > Report Acceleration Summaries. You will see four report summaries created by the Deployment Monitor:
2. Click on the Summary ID for each summary. The Size on Disk field tells you how much space the summary uses.
See the topic "Manage report acceleration" in the Knowledge Manager Manual for information on how report acceleration summaries are stored.
The Deployment Monitor doesn't index any new data, so it does not have an impact on your licensing volume.
