Whats new for Hunk 6.2.1

Splunk index archiving

The new Archive feature in Hunk 6.2.1 provides a user-friendly way for you to copy warm and cold Splunk indexer data as archived data into HDFS or S3 for use by Hunk. This lets you:

  • Search archived data that is no longer available in Splunk.
  • Search across archived buckets, virtual indexes, and Splunk Enterprise indexes.
  • Perform batch processing analysis in Hunk that includes Splunk Enterprise archived data.
  • Archive Splunk Enterprise indexer data to meet your data retention policies without using valuable Splunk indexer space.

To learn more, see About archiving Splunk indexes.
