Install your license

When you first install an instance of Splunk Enterprise, the instance includes a 60 day Enterprise Trial license that is enabled by default. This license allows you to try all of the features of Splunk Enterprise for 60 days, and to index up to 500 MB of data per day.

If you want to continue using Splunk Enterprise features after the 60 day trial expires, you must purchase an Enterprise license. Contact a Splunk sales rep to learn more.

If you do not install an Enterprise license after the 60 day trial expires, you can switch to Splunk Free. Splunk Free includes a subset of the features of Splunk Enterprise. It allows you to index up to 500 MB of data a day indefinitely. See About Splunk Free

For more information about Splunk licensing, read How Splunk licensing works in this manual.

To install and update your licenses using Splunk Web, see Install a license.
