How can I check if a Splunk server is installed?

Path Finder

I do have the IP address of the instance but I have no idea how to pull any info from it. Any help is appreciated.

for more details you also can use splunk metadata command ..

https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/6.6.3/SearchReference/Metadata

like ..
| metadata type=hosts index=_internal | where host="" | convert ctime(firstTime) ctime(lastTime) ctime(recentTime)

in result you will get the status of your splunk instance.

Try this on SH GUI

index=internal host=yourhost

You will see info regarding your host
On the left side of SH GUI you will see log_level field in which you will see error ,info and warning regarding your host so you can troubleshoot further.

You can use
index=internal host=Yourhost source=splunkd.log
In order to get the info about the splund process.

Hi thanks for your response in the place of host can i give host = ip address like this.

It should be field=value pair
host is your field and value is your host IP

Or else you can directly write
index=internal "hostip" NOT StreamedSearch

Let me know if it works!

if you can access the instance you can check :

$SPLUNK_HOME/bin/
./splunk status

this will show you if Splunk is running

you can run a search against that instance to see if its returning data from the _internal index

ie:

index=_internal host=10.10.10.1 source=*splunkd.log*
