Components that help to manage your deployment

Management components support the activities of the processing components. A deployment usually includes one or more of these management components:

  • The distributed management console performs centralized monitoring of the entire deployment.
  • The deployment server updates configurations and distributes apps to processing components, primarily forwarders.

As with processing components, management components are specially configured versions of Splunk Enterprise instances.

Depending on the component and its workload, you can frequently combine management components on a single Splunk Enterprise instance. In some cases, you can locate the management component on the same instance as a processing component.

See the documentation for the specific component to learn of any co-location possibilities:
