What is splunkd service??What is the difference between Splunkd service and splunk forwarder??
I cant see Access controls option in Settings in splunkweb so do i require admin access to view the Users/roles ??
splunkd is a distributed C/C++ server that accesses, processes, and indexes streaming machine data and handles search requests.
The forwarder can not handle searche requests. It consume data locally and then forward the data across the network to another Splunk Enterprise component, called the indexer which indexes the data and runs searches..
Yes of course you should have admin Role to view the Users Roles.
