This is more of a Linux question, but you can redirect the output to save to a new txt file when starting Splunk

./splunk start > output.txt 2>&1

Yes, it will not show in the console. It will output it's entire contents to a file called output.txt

I just tested this and it worked as expected

Why? Don't you want to know if there are problems starting Splunk?

The output is written to $SPLUNK_HOME/var/log/splunk/splunk_stdout.log automatically. I'm not sure if you can suppress it from going to the console without side effects.
