I have been testing Splunk window version on my Microsoft Window XP(32bits). Window version was easy to install and control Splunk software. But somehow, I don't feel like power of Splunk is fully used. Beside it kinds of slow than I thought. When I researched about Splunk, realized most of power users are using either Linux or Mac OS version of Splunk. I decided install Splunk on OpenSuSE 11. As usual I googled some install info before start installation and I found some interesting comments that "Do not use OpenSuSE for Splunk, it doesn't work". Yes, it happened to me. But there were tips to resolve the issue. See below notes.
Whole process of installation was fairly easy. In this example, I will try to install Splunk with rmp version.

As you know, Cisco Systems is one of top vendor in Router and Switch market in the world since early 90's. If someone asks who #1 market leader is, then 99 out of 100 would say "Cisco Systems". Well, in the router market, Cisco was obvious, but who was 2nd leader on switch market? There were few candidates, Cabletron(current Enterasys), Bay Networks, Madge(token ring), HP, 3Com and so on. Most of makers were out of picture, but 3Com is still one of popular switch vendor in these days. Actually, 3com one of few vendor who has IT total solution.
Cisco and 3Com are IT leaders and they developed a lot of technology and some of new technique is under way to be IT standard. Cisco and 3Com have their own proprietary techniques which are more than improving IT industry. That's good for industry, but not for consumers. why? Sometime it brought compatibility issue like today's case.
Slow performance issue was raised due to duplex optioning mis-match between Cisco device and 3Com switches. Well, ended up we found a solution, but it was definitely troublesome. Here is what the issue I was facing and how that was resolved.

There are many modified versions in out there, but I am using version 1.7 only. If you are Linux user, you can download thru software repository system.
