The standard Splunk directory is /opt/splunk. If that's not where yours is then find / -name splunkd should find it.

This should identify locations of Splunk Enterprise or Splunk Universal Forwarders. I've only tested on Linux.

# using locate command (very fast if available)
locate --regex "splunk(forwarder)?/var/log/splunk/splunkd.log$" | awk -F "/var" '{print $1}'

# using find command
find / -type f -name "splunkd.log" 2>/dev/null | awk -F "/var" '{print $1}'
