Topology and Setting up Splunk Environment

  • This app has been distributed in two parts.

1) Add-on app, which runs collector scripts and gathers data from EMC Isilon node, does indexing on it and provides indexed data to Main app.
2) Main app, which receives indexed data from Add-on app, runs searches on it and builds dashboard using indexed data.

  • This App can be set up in two ways:
    1) Standalone Mode: Install main app and Add-on app on a single machine.

    • Here both the app resides on a single machine.
    • Main app uses the data collected by Add-on app and builds dashboard on it

    2) Distributed Environment: Install main app and Add-on app on search head, Only Add-on on forwarder system and indexes.conf file from Add-on bundle on Indexer.

    • Here also both the apps resides on search head machine, but no need to configure Add-on on search head.

    • Only Add-on needs to be installed and configured on forwarder system.

    • On Indexer, you can either put complete Add-on without configuring or just indexes.conf from the Add-on bundle that contains definition for 'isilon' index.

    • Execute the following command on forwarder to forward the collected data to the indexer.
      /opt/splunk/bin/splunk add forward-server <indexer_ip_address>:9997

    • On Indexer machine, enable event listening on port 9997 (recommended by Splunk).

    • Main app on search head uses the received data and builds dashboards on it.


No additional configuration is needed for this app.
