Deployment Architecture

Whats the suggested way of licensing a test/development environment?


Whats the suggested method to maintain a test/development environment in parallel to his production environment if the developer licence does no longer support clustering/search head clusters?

Deploying updates without testing them excessivly in our test environment is an absolute no-go.

50GB Personalized Dev/Test licenses are available to users associated with accounts with a paid Splunk Enterprise or Splunk Cloud license of any size and can be requested here: . These licenses do not allow clustering, among other restrictions.

10GB Developer licenses are available to everyone and can be requested using this form: . These licenses have a lower ingest volume, but have fewer feature restrictions.

I am using a DEV licens and I am also using it as a dev before going into production.
I am using SH-Cluster, and mine is working.
When did this stop?
In the readme faq, it only says limited usage and.

  • Support for one authenticated account
  • Single node
  • No clustering

- No distributed search


We are using our DEV licens to test new apps agains our DEV Cluster.
Before making changes in Production.
Wil the support for clustering in DEV end?

use your dev as a license slave to your prod license master
carve a small license pool and call it ... lets say: "dev"
