Splunk Architecture with two IP addresses

Hi to everyone

It makes sense to have a Splunk Architecture, with machines with two addresses?

For example:

  • 1 Indexer with 1 address for web access, and another address for receive syslog

Another example:

  • 1 indexer with 1 address for web access, and another address for index replication

Thanks in advance

Regards

Hi.. As long as you have needed flexibility from Networking and Systems administration side, the above setup can be done. I don't think there would be big performance advantages (assuming your network is overall well managed) by this. However from a process/implementation standpoint I can see how this might make things better regulated for certain environments. I would imagine this naturally adds a bit to administrative overhead and will also add additional factors to consider when trouble shooting issues (clustering/data loss).
