Will Splunk work on machine using GPU in place of CPU ?

Hi guys,

I want to know, if I have a machine in which I am using GPU(Graphical Processoring Unit) instead of standard CPU. Will I be able to install and use splunk on that machine ?

The OS should obscure this detail from Splunk. As long as your OS is supported, you should be fine.

Hey woodcock, is there any official documentation related to this?

I have gone through this link, GPU is not mentioned anywhere in this doc.

completely agree to woodcock. OS should do that job. But the OS itself might find it hard and GPU does not have a memory management unit, so that you cannot give separate programs their own workspaces.
The issue is not related to Splunk itself, but a layer down below.
Good article is here
