Hunk Tutorial

Welcome to the Hunk Tutorial

The tutorials contained in this manual show you how to start using a simple installation of Hunk using a Hadoop Virtual Machine and some sample data. For more information about how you can use Hunk, and what it can do for you, see "Meet Hunk" in the Hunk user manual.

  • The Hunk tutorial shows you one relatively simple way to set up Hunk, add data (included) to HDFS, and configure a provider and index. We then show you how to check your data and run a few simple searches on the Hadoop directory. We are walking through the steps using the Cloudera Quickstart VM for VMware but we also include steps for setting up YARN configurations.
  • The Hunk for YARN tutorial describes how to setup Hunk for YARN using Hortonworks Virtual Box 2.0.
  • The tutorials in this manual do not teach you how to install Hunk to work with your existing HDFS infrastructure. For instructions on installing Hunk on your system see "Install and configure Hunk" in this manual.
  • This tutorial does not deep dive into working with the search bar and writing search commands, which is discussed in great detail in the Splunk Enterprise documentation. If you are not already familiar with Splunk Enterprise's rich reporting functionality, we recommend you check out the Splunk Enterprise Search Manual.
