they were in module three, where we'll be setting up Splunk
We'll discuss the different parts of ***,
go through the steps to set up a quick practice environment
and show you how to install foreigners to get data into your *** environment
before we move on to the next video discussing the parts of ***, I want to give a few notes about planning your environment.
We will not cover everything needed to adequately plan for a production environment in this course,
but I wanted to give you some resource is for further study.
You don't need any specific set up for this course, But if you're using unusual system, you may want to check out splitting system requirements prior to trying to run through the installation instructions. If you're working with an old system, for example,
you may need to use an older version of Splunk.
When you're looking to set up Splunk for a real production environment, you like. We want to check out Splunk capacity planning manual.
This specifies what hard row requirements you may be looking at.
There are also some tools, like ***, sizing dot off spot dot com that can help you in planning storage requirements based on how much data you're ingesting, your data retention policies and architecture.
Even for a small company, these requirements can quickly get up. Two Terabytes
Spanx installation manual could show you supported OS is and provide more information on system requirements.
Here are a few charts from that documentation
for this course and for the study As a beginner out ***, you may want to start off with some disposable virtual machines. Torque from
Microsoft has approval when those 10 Enterprise VM you could practice with as one option.
While you aren't likely to see a business running *** off a collie Lennox machine, offensive Security offers a pre Veldt machine you could use to jump into the activities. For this course quickly,
both this one. End the Windows machine to get a feel for working in multiple environments.
Even if you know you want to set up the splint platform on Lennox is likely you'll need to install foreigners in the future on Windows machines,
since we aren't going in depth with setting up virtual machines. If you do run into repeated issues, you can still complete most of the activities in this course by signing up for a free seven day trial for the sports sandbox.
This will give you pre populated, dated play with
and you can still work on on. Using the Web Consul under the search is this isn't the preferred option, but if you know you only want to get a feel for the consul, you could do this.
We'll dive into the different parts of *** in the next video. Thanks for watching.
