64-bit support in Mac OS 10.6

Path Finder

I'm curious when we might see 64-bit support in Mac OS 10.6. 10.5 ran 64-bit just fine, but 10.6 does not, it runs in 32-bit.

Posted in the forums here: http://www.splunk.com/support/forum:SplunkGeneral/4382 but received no response.

Thanks!

We don't have a timeline for a 64-bit release on Snowleopard I'm afraid, so I can't give you an expected date. It's on the Development list of 'things-to-do' but not a priority right now. If this is something that would be important for a major deployment, you can feed this info to the PM team via your Sales rep or by filing a request for it via the Support Case process.

Mick,

Thanks! I was hoping for somewhat better news, but I guess I'll just take it as good that it's on the list. Maybe for 4.2 or 4.5 then, or I'll just look at moving our install to Linux.

And no, we're using Splunk Free since we have a small amount of inputs, but the search boost, and efficiency would be nice to get back with 64-bit.

I havent heard anything on it in a while. I'll ping the Engineering side and see if it's on the cards for any time soon.

No further progress has been made on this build in recent Dev cycles, it looks like it has fallen off the priority list, likely because there hasn't been anybody clamouring for it. You could try submitting a request for it via a support case, but no guarantee it will happen any time soon, if at all. Sorry

wow, that's a shame. If it hadn't been supported in 10.5 I could almost say "eh, whatever" but to have it, then drop support for it just seems cold.

submitting support ticket seems to have done nothing (haven't heard back at all)... that was on Jan 11, 2011. 2+ months seems like a long time, even for free support.

And with 4.2 out today, I was hoping against hope we'd see 64-bit, but alas, still 32-bit.

Anything?
