Licence: Freeware
Version 3.2 Preview Release | Release Date: 2008-01-15 | Download

Welcome to Splunk Preview!

Splunk Preview is where you can get an early look at new features before the next general availability (GA) release.

Caution: Preview is not meant for production. You can't upgrade a prior GA Splunk release to a Splunk Preview, and you won't be able to upgrade Preview to the next GA release. The features of Splunk Preview are still under construction, and some older features may not work.

Not ready for the cutting edge? Download the latest current release instead.
Installing Splunk Preview

Follow the install instructions in the latest GA release. However, you no longer set SPLUNK_HOME in etc/setSplunkEnv. That has been moved to etc/splunk-paths.conf
About Splunk Preview licensing

Splunk Preview comes with a pre-installed and configured Enterprise license that will expire at the end of January, 2008. Subsequent Preview releases will also include licenses that expire on a preset date. Regular 3.x Enterprise licenses (either trial or production) do not work with Preview releases. If you've overwritten the included license, you can find a copy of it in splunk-free.license in your Preview installation's etc directory.
About Splunk Preview documentation

The Splunk Preview documentation is also under construction. Here, you will find in-progress documentation covering the new features in Splunk. It's possible that during development, a feature's implementation might change from its original specification, so don't be surprised if you notice that this documentation changes from one visit to the next.

IMPORTANT: Splunk Preview documentation covers only the new features in this Preview release. For details on pre-existing features and installation instructions, please refer to the documentation posted for the latest GA release.
Developers involved

During the course of Preview's development, the developers working on new features will be blogging about their work. These blogs supplement and link to the Preview documentation. Check dev.splunk.com for tips, tricks, and additional information.
