Good but not ready for Production

I liked the fact that there was a splunk AMI and you can spin up splunk really fast. I was able to build an instance and be up in a matter of minutes. The issues I have with the AMI is that there is currently no support for the new C4 instances. I wanted to build a beefy splunk server with the latest CPUs since searches are CPU heavy and I'm not able to do that now. I also noticed that the AMI does not address disabling Transparent Huge Pages which splunk recommends. This can cause a 30% performance degradation. http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.3/ReleaseNotes/SplunkandTHP

So, because I couldn't use the instance I wanted, I can't really use this AMI for my needs. I can use it for testing no problem though. The THP issues is not that big because you can disable it easy enough but if splunk is touting this AMI as a recommended configuration I would like to see the THP addressed since it causes performance issues.
