Hi saifuddin9122,
It's not so fully clear your question, do you want to know what are role and functions of Search Head in Distributed Splunk architecture?

If this is your need, You could find in Splunk documentation site many useful information
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/DistSearch/Whatisdistributedsearch
http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.5.0/DistSearch/Whatsearchheadssend

there is also an eLearning free course that describes Splunk architecture http://www.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAAHSJ

Bye.

Controls Summary Indices
Can be the Monitoring Console
Can be the Deployment Server
Can be an Indexer (all-in-one architecture)
