Deployment & Upgrades

Deployment matrix

Splunk roles required
Search head yes
Indexer tiers no

If Splunk search heads are running in Search Head Cluster (SHC), the Splunk application must be deployed by the SHC deployer.

Dependencies

There are currently no dependencies for the application.

Initial deployment

The deployment of the Splunk application is very straight forward:

  • Using the application manager in Splunk Web (Settings / Manages apps)
  • Extracting the content of the tgz archive in the “apps” directory of Splunk
  • For SHC configurations (Search Head Cluster), extract the tgz content in the SHC deployer and publish the SHC bundle

Upgrades

Upgrading the Splunk application is pretty much the same operation than the initial deployment.

All of TrackMe components and configuration items are upgraded resilient, in respects with Splunk configuration good practices.
