search head cluster

search head cluster


A group of Splunk Enterprise search heads that serve as a central resource for searching. The search heads in a cluster are interchangeable. You can run or access the same searches, dashboards, knowledge objects, and so on, from any member of the cluster. To achieve this interchangeability, the search heads in the cluster share configurations, apps, search artifacts, and job loads.
