Hello,

We have Splunk on Linux servers.

Has anyone installed the Falcon Sensor from Crowdstike on their Linux servers that host Splunk?

Crowdstrike is a next-gen antivirus solution.  

Any issues or unforeseen consequences?  

Thanks,

If you absolutely must, follow the https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.2.5/ReleaseNotes/RunningSplunkalongsideWindowsantivir... document.

However, I'd strongly advise against installing AV software on splunk servers - with so many exclusions it'd be pretty useless anyway. And the additional load on the server (especially the I/O load on scans) can mess with your indexers.
