I had imported the tutorial data for learning purposes, but I don't need that data anymore. How do I delete this data from my Splunk instance?

There is a topic, Remove indexes and indexed data, in the Managing Indexers and Clusters of Indexers manual. You can use the deletecommand to handle this, if you have the data in a main index, or you can use the clean command if you have it in a separate index and want to remove that index entirely. Proceed with caution, though, and read the docs carefully so you understand what is actually happening and not happening with these commands.
