...and more.

Note The Installation Manual details installing full Splunk Enterprise only. To install the Splunk universal forwarder, see "Universal forwarder deployment overview" in the Forwarding Data Manual. Unlike Splunk heavy and light forwarders, which are full Splunk Enterprise instances with some features changed or disabled, the universal forwarder is a separate executable with its own set of installation procedures. For an introduction to forwarders, see "About forwarding and receiving."
