Monitoring for Splunk

The Splunk Monitoring application can be used to monitor your Splunk forwarding nodes from your indexing node using an nmap query script. It creates a new "splunk_monitoring" index and has a single dashboard that displays the overall number of servers that are UP or DOWN as well as the status of each individual server.

To use the Splunk Monitoring application, extract the files into your $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps directory. The actual monitoring script uses nmap so make sure you have it installed on your indexing node. Edit the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_monitoring/local/tags.conf file to include a list of your servers (the actual tag doesn't matter) or edit the $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/splunk_monitoring/bin/splunk_port_monitor.sh script to point to a different location for the tag_file variable. You will also want to edit that file if you run Splunk on a port other than 8089 or if your nmap executable is located in a location other than /usr/bin/nmap.
