The Splunk ODBC Driver is currently available for Windows only.
You must install the Splunk ODBC Driver on the Windows PC that runs the application you want to use it with (Excel or Tableau). However, it does not need to be installed on the computer that is running Splunk Enterprise.
Though running the Splunk ODBC Driver and Splunk Enterprise on the same Windows PC is a supported configuration, you can use the Splunk ODBC Driver to connect to Splunk Enterprise running on any supported platform, including Linux, OS X, Solaris, and so on.
To install the Splunk ODBC Driver, you need the following components.
- Splunk Enterprise 5 or later running on any supported operating system
Client computer (running Splunk ODBC Driver):
- Windows 7 or later (including Windows Server 2008 R2 and later Windows Server versions)
- Microsoft Excel 2010 or later, or Tableau Professional or Server
- Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package, downloadable from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555. (If you use the Splunk ODBC Driver with a 64-bit app such as the 64-bit edition of Microsoft Excel, install the x64 redistributable package from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632.)
Important: The Splunk Enterprise computer and the client computer can be the same computer.
