Is Splunk Hunk still the product name and is it IP v6 compatible?

Good Day

I am researching Hunk User Manual and trying to determine if is suitable for our environment.

(1) Could confirm the correct name of product? Splunk Hunk®(Legacy)
Hunk or just Splunk Hunk. When I search the splunk website https://www.splunk.com/en_us/products.html it is not listed so this makes it difficult for our enterprise standards section to approve product for testing.

(2) Is Hunk IPv6 capable and could I receive documentation to that via email?

Hadoop does not support IPV6. And since Hunk run queries against Hadoop, or copy buckets to Hadoop (Hadoop Data Roll), I would say ..
Network access from the user to the Hunk UI (Splunk Search Head) = Yes
Network access from Hunk to Hadoop = No

Great clarification, thank you!

The product that was Hunk has evolved somewhat, and is now Splunk Analytics for Hadoop.

It is contained in the Linux download for Splunk Enterprise, and licensed separately.

See the Splunk Analytics for Hadoop documentation.

I don't know the answer to the IPv6 question specifically, but Splunk Enterprise supports IPv6, so I think Splunk Analytics for Hadoop should also.
