We plan to create Splunk pre-installed virtual machine (VM)
templates for internal use.

We have assumed the following points should be taken steps
with Splunk VM templates.

Does someone have any other ideas or points to notine for VM templates?

In a view point of DevOps, templates should be minimize like pure-OS,
Splunk or other applications should be installed and configured
via provisioning tools (Ansible, Chef, Puppet, Salt Stack, ...)
after launch of VMs.

I assume you will take care of the OS level stuff as well:
ulimits
Turn off THP

Otherwise, looks relatively solid.

Thank you @sdvorak.

I agree with you. OS tuning is important, especially for production.
