Installation

Is there a CLI command that will return license info?

Is there a CLI command that I can use to determine what kind of license is installed on an instance?

I'd like to know if it's a Trial or an Enterprise license, the volume, the lifetime and expiry date and maybe even the license string.

This will give you most of what you're looking for -

./splunk show license

On my test Splunk instance, this returns:

There are new ways you can alert based on violations: Community:TroubleshootingIndexedDataVolume

Yeah, what gives with removing this command? I had a nice shell script setup to alert us via email of violations, and being clear of violations - and it was based on the results of the "Show license" command. There doesn't seem to be an equivalent.

Is there a log file to which violations are logged?

4.2 update...

[root@funkytown ~]# /opt/splunk/bin/splunk version

Splunk 4.2.1 (build 98164)

[root@funkytown ~]# /opt/splunk/bin/splunk show license

This command is deprecated.

[root@funkytown ~]#

Since this question has been answered already, I guess, you'd better place that comment/answer in a new thread. Maybe someone has a solution!
