Upgrade your search head for Hunk
Download and install the new version of Hunk
Upgrade your search head by installing the newest version of Hunk. To install Hunk on your system, download the Linux distribution for Splunk 6.x and install it, then add a Hunk license.
You can find the correct version to download here: http://www.splunk.com/download/hunk
Configure this installation to run on a search head that resides on a *nix platform. You can run Hunk on any machine that meets the requirements for a search head. See Configure the search head.
Note: Hunk is not supported on Windows.
To learn more about installing or updating Hunk, see "Install on Linux" in the Installation manual.
Tar file install
To install Hunk on a Linux system, expand the tarball into an appropriate directory using the
tar xvzf hunk_package_name.tgz
The default install directory is
splunk in the current working directory. To install into
/opt/splunk, use the following command:
tar xvzf hunk_package_name.tgz -C /opt
Note: When you install Hunk with a tarball:
- Some non-GNU versions of
tarmight not have the
-Cargument available. In this case, to install in
/optor place the tarball in
/optbefore running the
tarcommand. This method will work for any accessible directory on your machine's filesystem.
- Ensure that the disk partition has enough space to hold the uncompressed volume of the data you plan to keep indexed.
In your indexes.conf file, edit the attribute
vix.splunk.setup.package so that it provides the path to the new Splunk .tgz package that Splunk can install and use on data nodes. The next time MapReduce spawns a search, Splunk pushes the new package to the nodes and upgrades the version stored on on the DataNode and TaskTracker.
See "Set up a provider and virtual index in the configuration file" for more information about editing configuration files.
See "Provider configuration variables" for more information about editing this attribute in the Hunk user interface.
