New Resources for Upgrading Splunk Enterprise


We wanted to share some newly published best practices for upgrading your Splunk! 

Every great Splunk admin should be thinking about upgrading to the latest version and we want to make sure you’ve got all the guidance you need. We recommend that an upgrade is performed every two years. Learn how to get in the ‘sweet spot’ of Splunk Enterprise updates - ensuring you can implement stable new features, keep pace with innovation and reduce risk.

Read the “Upgrading Splunk Enterprise” Lantern how-to article in order to get help during your upgrade process. You’ll learn about version compatibility, avoiding pitfalls, order of operations, and general tips and best practices.

We also have resources available on our Splunk Answers Discussion board.

Happy upgrading, folks!
