Eventgen

Splunk Built
Overview
Details
The Splunk Event Generator (Eventgen) is a utility which allows its users to easily build real-time event generators.

Eventgen allows an app developer to get events into Splunk to test their applications. It provides a somewhat ridiculous amount of configurability to allow users to simulate real data.

To join the development community, please go to https://github.com/splunk/eventgen.
For documentation, please go to the Eventgen Documentation(http://splunk.github.io/eventgen/).

The Splunk Event Generator

The Splunk Event Generator is a utility which allows its user to easily build real-time event generators.
The current maintainers of this project are Brian Bingham (bbingham@splunk.com), Tony Lee (tonyl@splunk.com), and Jack Meixensperger (jackm@splunk.com).

The goals of this project:

  • Eliminate the need for hand coded event generators in Splunk apps
  • Allow for portability of event generators between applications and allow templates to be quickly adapted between use cases
  • Allow every type of event or transaction to be modeled inside Eventgen
