Services Consultant Architect Practice Lab 1
This self-graded lab focuses on the download and installation of Splunk on four hosts. Registrants must configure a single search head, two indexers, and a monitoring console. The indexers should be configured as distributed search peers of the search head and the monitoring console.
Services Consultant Architect Practice Lab 2
This self-graded lab focuses on the configuration of a Splunk universal forwarder and on app installation using a deployment server.
Services Consultant Architect Practice Lab 3
This self-graded lab focuses on the configuration of data forwarding through an intermediate tier of universal forwarders and routing data to specific indexes based on the contents of the raw events.
Implementation Fundamentals Practical Lab
This lab, manually graded by Splunk Education, consists of six modules, as follows:
Module 1 – Establish Deployment Client Connectivity
Module 2 – Identify Data Onboarding Parameters
Module 3 – Define and Deploy Input Specification
Module 4 – Create Search-Time Field Extractions
Module 5 – Build a Dashboard
Module 6 – Submit Work for Grading
Distributed Search Migration Lab
In this self-graded lab, candidates must emulate the process of expanding a Splunk infrastructure from a single all-in-one node to a distributed (multi-indexer, plus search head) configuration.
Indexer Cluster Lab
In this self-graded lab, candidates connect a "pre-existing" infrastructure formed of two unclustered indexers, a search head, and a monitoring console, then migrate this stand-alone structure to take on a new cluster master. The new cluster master will manage the indexers in a newly-formed indexer cluster, connect the search head to the indexers, and manage index replication. Finally, the customer's data must be migrated into the clustered bucket format so that the data can be replicated across the cluster.
Please note: All candidates must be Splunk Enterprise Certified Architects to access the lab bundle.
