Install your license
The first time you download Splunk, you are asked to register.
Your registration authorizes you to receive a temporary (60 day) Enterprise trial license, which allows a maximum indexing volume of 500 MB/day. This license is included with your download.
The Enterprise license enables the following features:
- Multiple user accounts and access controls.
- Distributed search and data routing.
- Deployment management.
