old question but worth to answer... introduced with V6.5 there is now the "old" Hadoop archiving feature available in Splunk Enterprise core without the need for an additional "Splunk Analytics for Hadoop" license.
The feature is called "Hadoop Data Roll".
No need for Hadoop Connect anymore if you want to archive buckets instead of search results (which are different use cases, obviously 🙂
I'm not sure what you mean by directly here? Hadoop Connect is designed to allow the export of search results. Hunk's archiving is designed to allow archiving. What are you trying to do?
Thanks Dart. We have not touched both practically. I have just gone through the docs and came to know this. Our requirement is to get archive the indexed data from Splunk to Hadoop. What i am trying to do is can we export the indexed data (buckets) without exporting the search results through any other means without Hunk? Is this possible in Hadoop Connect?
