What goes where ?¶
Application stack components¶
|metricator-for-nmon||Front-user core application||Search Heads|
|SA-metricator-for-nmon||Support Add-on for index-time configurations||Indexers|
|TA-metricator-for-nmon||Technical Add-on for metrics and inventory generation||Each monitored server|
|TA-metricator-hec-for-nmon||Technical Add-on for metrics and inventory generation||Each monitored server|
|DA-ITSI-METRICATOR-NMON||ITSI module for Nmon Metricator||ITSI search head(s)|
ONLY one technical addon must be deployed on the same host, BUT you can mix any both types of addons in your deployment.
Splunk Standalone deployment¶
A standalone Splunk installation means that all the Splunk roles are performed by the same instance, most likely for testing and development purposes.
|Standalone||X||X (optional)||X (optional)|
The Technical Add-ons provide performance and configuration collection for the host than runs the add-on, which is optional
If running ITSI in a standalone server, the ITSI module must be deployed as well.
A Splunk distributed deployment is a Splunk infrastructure where specific Splunk roles are dedicated to specific instances.
For more information: http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Deploy/Indexercluster
The Metricator is fully compatible with any kind of Splunk distributed deployment.
|Search head||X||X (optional)|
|Master node||X (optional)|
|Deployment server||X (optional)|
|Heavy Forwarder||X (if TA is not installed)||X|
The Technical Add-on provides performance and configuration collection for the host than runs the add-on, which is optional
If running ITSI, the ITSI module must be deployed on all ITSI search heads:
|ITSI Search head(s)||X|
Additional notes about ITSI:
- On the ITSI search head(s), only the ITSI module is mandatory required
- If ITSI is running in a Search Head Cluster (SHC), the module must be deployed by the SHC deployer along with other ITSI components
- The Splunk Web Metricator application can be as well deployed on the ITSI search heads without affecting the module, but this is not required
