How licence works on two Splunk instances on one server?

Engager

If I run two Splunk instances on one server, those instances are fully separate, uses separate ports, database, etc. How does licence works in this case, it counts data separately, or there are centralized licence manager for all instances in same server?

Hi sirex,

it does not matter if you run two Splunk instances or one Splunk instance on one server. Each Splunk instance will use some kind of license, locally installed or provided by a remote license master. Most important: each Splunk instance will count the amount of raw data coming in, towards the license usage.

Just as example: if both instances use the same license and both are indexing 5Gb each you will need a 10Gb license.

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS
