I need to export the events from Splunk to a Hadoop environment, so I am thinking of using the Splunk Hadoop Connect app for this purpose. Actually, our Splunk is installed on Windows servers. I came across various Splunk Hadoop Connect app documentations and find out that we cannot use the app in a Windows environment.
You must deploy Splunk Hadoop Connect on a *nix instance of Splunk Enterprise.
Anyone done this scenario before? Should we need to create a new nix Splunk instances? After creating the new nix environment, can we directly install the app on the search head?
