Getting Data In

Which instance should host the console?

xindeNokia
Path Finder

REF - http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.0.5/DMC/WheretohostDMC

Doc seems not straightforward to me for the case: one indexer + one search head

it suggests "not to host the console on a production search head"
does this mean console should sit on the indexer?

Thanks inadvance

Hi @xindeNokia,

it says it in the second column:

Otherwise, run the Monitoring Console on a search head that is dedicated to running Monitoring Console searches.

If you don't have too much load/too many searches running on your Searchhead its also fine to host the DMC on the Searchhead.
But you would normally go for a secondary instance that takes on tasks as the license master etc.
