Help with Splunk license type for sharing with multiple users

New Member

I work in XYZ firm and we're organizing a contest for some candidates from college. I'd like to setup a Splunk instance and upload some demo data there for the contest.
The candidates would need to perform searches on the Splunk instance. That's the requirement.

What would be the Splunk license that can be used to share an instance with multiple users who'll be performing searches at the same time?

Hi @Tarun 

If you have got limited students less than 20, and your data is not more than 500 MB per day you can use Splunk Enterprise Trail license which will be valid for 60 days. Find more conditions here,

Assuming you have enough resources to support those many students. IF you install on a standard host other than  splunk recommends you may hit with performance issues if there are too many concurrent searches.
