Splunk App for OSquery

Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
OSquery is an operating system instrumentation framework for OS X, Linux, and FreeBSD. It enables you to gather a variety of system and monitoring information.

OSquery docs: http://osquery.readthedocs.io/en/stable/

Note: I use default directory locations for Splunk and OSquery

Splunk App Installation:
Install like a standard app in the Splunk "apps" directory on your search head(s).

Splunk Forwarder Configuration:
sourcetype = osqueryd.results

The searches are built off of the "osqueryd.results" sourcetype. If you'd like to use a different sourcetype the dashboards will need to be updated. Plan to update this in the future.

OSquery Configuration:

Ensure you have added the various OSquery pack .conf files to "/var/osquery/packs" for the "packs" configs listed below to work.

"config_plugin": "filesystem",
"logger_plugin": "filesystem",
