Do I need to purchase licenses to use these apps and add-ons from Splunkbase in our production environment?

Path Finder

I want to use the following Splunk apps in the production environment.

  1. Kafka messaging modular input
  2. AMQP messaging modular input
  3. Hadoop Connect
  4. Hunk App for Hbase
  5. Alert manager

Can anyone please let me know do I need to buy the licenses for each one of them? Will it not be covered in the Splunk Enterprise license which I will be buying in some days?

Swift reply would be much appreciated.

None of those apps have any separate licensing, they are free. The Hunk App for Hbase requires Hunk, which is a separate license from Splunk Enterprise. The apps also might have impact on the amount of data you index in Splunk Enterprise, so you will want to account for that in your purchase.

Thanks for the reply.
Till now in my POC, I have used free version of Splunk (500mb limit).
Does it have Hunk installed in it as I used Hunk app for Hbase for Hbase data indexing?

To expand upon ChrisG's answer, Splunk's base license is based on the volume of data indexed on a per Day basis. In addition to this, there are add on Premium Apps which have an additional cost factor. These include ITSI, Enterprise Security, VMWare, Hunk etc. You would need to reach out to sales and discuss your use case and data source volumes for them to help correctly size a license and pricing model for you.

I understand your point. I have an understanding that Hunk & Hunk App for Hbase are two different thing. Hunk App for Hbase is free to use but Hunk has paid license. Please correct my understand.
