After downloading, installing and starting Hunk, you’ll find two Hunk Server processes running on your host: splunkd and splunkweb.

  • splunkd is a distributed C/C++ server that accesses, processes and creates a virtual index from machine data and handles search requests. splunkd supports a command line interface for searching and viewing results.
  • splunkweb is a Python-based application server providing the Splunk Web user interface. It allows you to search and navigate machine data accessible by Hunk and to manage your Hunk deployment using your browser.
