Splunk Dev

Is there a way to speed up Splunk restarts in a development environment?

New Member


I am working on a App with some custom command and it requires me to start a bit. Is there a way to speed up the restarts? Right now it's about 45 seconds. (8 core, 64gig, m2) with latest Splunk Container. 


Right now I have shell into the Enterprise container and I just sudo restart the splunk bin. 

Maybe? ...

- Maybe remove some apps? If so which are safe to remove that are packaged with Splunk without causing issues? 
- Can I get rid of the splunk web login and log directly in as admin? 


Any ideas?

Hi @danielteachesit,

You can use -f option to restart faster. This option forces restart without gracefully closing files, connections, etc. If you are in a dev environment and do not care about data indexing.

./splunk restart -f
