Where is the border between Hunk and Splunk ?

Engager

Hi,

I would like to know if it is possible to use a standalone Hunk, paying only the Hunk licence.

If yes, what can it do ? According to the documentation, Hunk's licence includes the Splunk's Web Framework, REST API, and SKDs. Does it include as well the Splunk Processing Language ?

Now I have a trial licence (just downloaded and installed), is it possible for me to revoke the Splunk trial licence to keep only the Hunk trial licence ? (and see by myself what can it do)

The border between Hunk and Splunk is not really clear for me...

Thanks

The Hunk license enables running MapReduce jobs against your Hadoop Virtual Index. All other features are supported, but without a Splunk license you will be unable to ingest and index data either locally or from Splunk forwarders.

You can have Hunk standalone or Splunk Enterprise standalone or both licenses installed on the same machine. Hunk acts as a Splunk Search Head and can search both Hadoop data as well as Splunk Enterprise indexers.
