Splunk Enterprise licensing (Does it include multiple Indexers, Search Headers, and Forwarders?)



If I bought a single Splunk Enterprise license and only had one master node, will I need any additional licensing for...

  • multiple Indexers
  • multiple Search Heads
  • multiple Universal Forwarders (my servers that I want to send data from)

Splunk licenses by the volume of data indexed (at least so far, other license options are coming). It doesn't matter how many Splunk instances you have as long as the amount of data brought in stays below the licensed limit (even that is flexible).

If this reply helps you, Karma would be appreciated.
