I want to know where should we install "SolarWinds Add-on Splunk", I mean on deployment server, search head or indexers? Also I want to know if this Add-on can get logs like when they are sent from syslog server.

Like most TAs, it should be installed on indexers so index-time properties and transforms can be used.  It should also be installed on search heads so search-time properties can be used.  Do NOT enable inputs in either instance type.

To use the inputs feature of the app, install it on a heavy forwarder.
