It seems that hunk is completely integrated into Hadoop but
Hadoop connect is used in environment where splunk and Hadoop is deployed differently.

Hello Ledion.

Thank you for the reply.

I was considering to use Hunk or Hadoop Connect as speeding up the search process of splunk.
I understand that basic concept of splunk for speeding up the search process for massive data is
by using the summary data indexing. However, I find designing the data flow for summary indexing
becomes bit complicated when types of reports you are trying to summary grows.

So I was interested in Hadooop integration whether it can solve my problem or not by hadoop technology.
