System Requirements: This app is tested and working on Ubuntu and OSX 10.11.
Installation for this add-on is fairly straight forward and you can be up and running in a matter of minutes. Start out by obtaining a Authorization Code.
If you need assistance in obtaining a Authorization Code you can use the following instructions or reach out on Splunk Answers.
Simply use the following instructions to get started collecting your data in Splunk.
This app should just work and start indexing your data once it's configured. It's main purpose is to get your data into Splunk in a fast and efficient manner. To visualize your data please also install (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/3219/)
The following command will allow you to check if the scripted input is running. You may see multiple instances of the python script as there are child processes that run to collect the data and ensure the command exists cleanly when Splunk is shutdown or restarted.
ps -ef | grep devices
Ensure you have your $SPLUNK_HOME variable set. More information on this can be found here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Splunk
Verify your nest_tokens.conf file is in the directory $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/NestAddonforSplunk/local and follows the format for each Nest Account:
key = api_key
Drastically improved the setup process so user's no longer need to bother running a curl command. The Add-on now takes care of that for you. Drop your Authorization Code into a config file per the instructions and restart Splunk. User's who have already setup the Add-on should be unaffected by this change.
