The Module System is a set of core Splunk Enterprise software and architecture principles for feature reuse in Splunk apps and add-ons. Module System extension points provide hooks into framework modules, MVC components and patterns, and AJAX to support custom application development.

This term applies to advanced xml.

A module system is a basic artifact that implements application functionality, including UI features. Every item in a Splunk XML view is a module system. The view XML defines the relationship between module systems by providing structure and behavior for the application.

Core modules included with the Splunk Enterprise distribution reside in the $SPLUNK_HOME/share/splunk/search_mrsparkle/modules/ directory. You can list all module systems by viewing http://host:port/modules in your browser.
