Splunk is the search engine for IT data.
Splunk can index any data for which it has read access. If you
don't give it sufficient privileges, you may not be able to search
all log files, network ports or database tables.
First time run instructions:
1. For tarball installations only:

up Splunk to start at boot.
2. If you have a Splunk Professional license, replace
./etc/splunk.license with your license.
