Does Rubrik add-on work with clustered search heads, heavyweight forwarders and deployment servers

New Member

Does this add-on work in a clustered environment, with clustered indexers, search heads, with the data being collected by heavyweight forwarders that are updated via a deployment server?

Hello there,

the add-on is intended to be installed on a full Splunk instance, hence a Heavy Forwarder as teh input is via REST API (modular input)
read ore here:
https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.2.3/AdvancedDev/ModInputsIntro

i will recommend the Heavy Forwarder to be independent for these kind of inputs, meaning, not deploy those inputs via Deployment Server. if you wish, you can deploy other configurations to the Heavy Forwarder, example will be: outputs.conf

here is a link for the app and in particular to the install instructions:
https://github.com/rubrikinc/rubrik-addon-for-splunk/blob/master/docs/quick-start.md

hope it helps
