Hi

Do i need to install an APP onto search peers?

If so, What is the best approach to get an APP(That i update daily) on to search peers(Indexers, Non Clustered).

So i am setting up one Search head and 2 Indexers, I think i have to install the APP onto the search peers, if so how can i manage this, as i will update them daily on my Search Head?

Regards
Robert

@robertlynch2020 What is the app ? You do not need to set up or update the app on Indexers.

The apps had a lots of datamodels, so i am trying to understand how it works.

If i don't install the apps on to the indexers and the forwarders send the data just to the indexers (not the search head), how does it know what is the structure of the datamodels for acceleration

The datamodel acceleration creates file on indexers in the below directory. This path can be configured on your indexers in indexes.conf . It does not need to know any structure, when you accelerate datamodel on search head the results will be sent to indexers in below directory.
volume:_splunk_summaries/$_index_name/datamodel_summary

Thanks for the replay.

So, i dont need to do anything - this is under the hood for me?

Unless the app documentation says it to be installed to Search head and indexers and or Heavy forwarders due to CIM or tags etc.
Which app is it?

I have created the app.

Then you don't need to do anything on indexers, except defining index.
