Amazon Kinesis Modular Input

This is a Splunk Modular Input Add-On for indexing records from Amazon Kinesis.

The Python code in this App is dual 2.7/3 compatible.
This version of the App enforces Python 3 for execution of the modular input script when running on Splunk 8+ in order to satisfy Splunkbase AppInspect requirements.
If running this App on Splunk versions prior to 8 , then Python 2.7 will get executed.

For details of the support we offer for our Apps , browse to : https://www.baboonbones.com/#support

This App is fully AppInspect passed for installing in your own hosted Splunk Enterprise environments or on your own hosted Splunk Forwarders and forwarding the collected data into Splunk Cloud.

If you want to install this App directly in Splunk Cloud , for our Commercially supported customers on our Ultra plan ( https://www.baboonbones.com/#support ) we provide custom private builds of any of our Apps tailored to the customer's specific requirements and configuration , and these custom private builds can then be uploaded as your own private Splunk Cloud Apps.

For customers that don't have support, we also offer the option to perform ad-hoc custom private builds of any of our Apps.

Release Notes

Version 1.7.5
June 18, 2022
  • in order to support huge modular input configuration xml strings when users want to run a very large number of inputs on 1 single instance of this app , we had to change the way that the child java process is invoked. Previously the xml string was passed as a program argument which could break the max argument size in the Linux kernel. Now we changed the logic to pass the xml string to the java process via the STDIN pipe.

  • The app performs periodic socket pings to the splunkd management port to determine if splunkd is still alive and if splunkd is not responding , usually because it has exited or is not network reachable, then the app self exits it's running java process.The default timeout is now 300 seconds. You can change this timeout value in bin/kinesis.py by setting the SPLUNKD_TIMEOUT_SECS variable.
