configuration file

configuration file


A file, also referred to as a .conf file, that contains Splunk Enterprise and app configuration information. Configuration files are stored in the following locations:

  • Default files: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/default
  • Local files: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local
  • App files: $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/

Splunk Enterprise and Splunk apps write configuration settings into configuration files. You can configure settings by editing stanzas within copies of the default configuration files in a local directory.
