Analysis Of SplunkBase Apps for Splunk

Splunk Cloud
Splunk Labs
This app is NOT supported by Splunk. Please read about what that means for you here.
Overview
Details
After being asked for a list of Splunk Apps in a spreadsheet a few times, I found a need to build this App. This App provides a simple dashboard with App stats and allows you to search for Splunk Apps within Splunk. It was also designed to work if you are offline, as long as you have been online once to collect data.

This App can be used to determine which Apps are certified to work with Splunk Cloud, Hunk, ES, etc.

This is just one example of how you can use Splunk to analyze web site content.

*NOTE: Firefox does not seem to like loading he dynamic menus, please use any other major browser.

After being asked for a list of Splunk Apps in a spreadsheet a few times, I found a need to build this App. This App provides a simple dashboard with App stats and allows you to search for Splunk Apps within Splunk. It was also designed to work if you are offline, as long as you have been online once to collect data.

Splunk 6.3+ now has most of this built in, but the offline benefits of this App still make it useful.

This was a collaborative effort:
James Donn - Dashboards and Searches
Kristofer Hutchinson - Custom CSS and .js
Chhean Saur - Data Collection script

Installation steps

To install and configure this app on your supported platform, follow these steps:

  1. Configure the following index within your environment, following your best practices:
    [apps]
    coldPath = $SPLUNK_DB/apps/colddb
    homePath = $SPLUNK_DB/apps/db
    thawedPath = $SPLUNK_DB/apps/thaweddb
    frozenTimePeriodInSecs = 604800

  2. Allow time for the script to run to gather data. If you need it right away, you can restart your Splunk Search Head.

  3. The "Update Splunk Apps KV Store" scheduled search needs time to run, but you can also run it manually.

  4. Enjoy!

Scripts and binaries

$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/analysis_of_splunkbase_apps/bin/getSplunkAppsV1.py runs every four hours to collect the latest list of Splunk Apps by calling Splunkbase's API.

New features

Splunk_apps includes the following new features:

  • The App has been re-written to use a single search to populate almost all dashboards.
  • The script will now work, no matter how many new Apps are published.
  • A "Products" lookup file is populated by the script.
  • The dashboards look at the first 10,000 events. This will need to be updated after there are more than 10,000 Apps ;)
  • A KV Store makes it lightning fast.
  • Added "Splunk Cloud Installation Method" to the analysis
  • Audit tab now automatically performs version compatibility checks
