Introduction

The Search Processing Language (SPL) is a set of commands that you use to search your data.

There are two versions of SPL: SPL and SPL2. This manual describes SPL2.

If you are looking for information about using SPL - For Splunk Cloud Platform, see Search Manual in the Splunk Cloud Platform documentation. For Splunk Enterprise, see Search Manual in the Splunk Enterprise documentation.

Where SPL2 is used

Several Splunk products use SPL2:

  • Splunk Stream Processing Service (SPS)
  • Splunk Data Stream Processor (DSP)
  • Splunk Mission Control

Learning SPL2

SPL2 makes the search language easier to use, removes infrequently used commands, and improves the consistency of the command syntax.

There are two Splunk manuals that contain information about SPL2:

SPL2 Search Reference (this manual)
The SPL2 Search Reference contains reference information about the SPL2 search commands, command syntax, data types, and functions.
SPL2 Search Manual
The SPL2 Search Manual contains information about how to use SPL2 commands effectively. You'll learn how to get started searching, how to use expressions and predicates, even how to add comments to your search strings.
