Course Description:

In this course, we’ll cover Splunk distributed deployment environments. This will include Splunk forwarder installation, remote log forwarding, deployment classes and applications. Distributed Splunk environments are commonly found in enterprise environments to help gather and manage logs from multiple hosts, network devices, and other parts of your environment.

We’ll leverage Amazon Web Services with Terraform to help with hosting and building the hosts.
