About Splunk Smartfile
Splunk Smartfile is a simple solution for handling big data. It makes it easy to collect, correlate, and analyze data in realtime and provides functionality for alerting, graphing and producing metrics for reporting, compliance, and analytics.
This document specifically covers Splunk Smartfile – we’re currently working on our Splunk Smartstore solution documentation.

Key benefits of load balancing
Loadbalancer.org specializes in providing application delivery controllers (ADC) within the Storage sector. Load balancing Splunk SmartFile ensures:
- optimized performance
- resilience (high availability)
How to load balance Splunk Smartfile
It’s highly recommended that you have a working Splunk Smartfile environment first before implementing the load balancer. The load balancer can be deployed as a single unit, although Loadbalancer.org recommends a clustered pair for resilience & high availability.
To provide load balancing and HA for Smartfile, the following VIPs are required:
- HTTPS (for all HTTPS based services)
- Syslog (UDP-based)
