Is there anything critical for me to consider upgrading my Splunk cluster from 6.2.1 to 6.2.5?


Hi Splunkers,

Good day! I just want to ask is there something critical for me to do an upgrade for my Splunk cluster from 6.2.1 to 6.2.5? As far as my observations are concerned, I don't see any service affecting under 6.2.1.

Critical is very subjective. You say you haven't observed any service problems, but also it depends on what you do with Splunk, how your Splunk processes are exposed, and what your organization classifies as critical. You may want to evaluate notices posted on the Splunk Security Portal for a number of notices on versions between 6.2.1 and 6.2.5.

You may also want to review the Release notes for each version. For example here's a link to 6.2.5's notes, and the others can be found on links near there.
