Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics

Splunk Built
Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
The Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics enables you to easily configure data inputs to pull data from AppDynamics' REST APIs. Data collected includes overall application performance, business transaction performance, infrastructure performance, and health rule violations for each application in AppDynamics. The companion Splunk App for AppDynamics provides dashboards and saved searches to visualize AppDynamics data in the Splunk platform. This add-on allows you to apply predictive analytics to your APM data and correlate AppDynamics data with all of your other machine data (wire data, logs, server data, infrastructure data, etc.) in the Splunk platform.

Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics


  • AppDynamics Collector URL (host & port)
  • AppDynamics User ID, Password
  • AppDynamics Account Name

Installation Instructions

Install the Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics on a heavy forwarder for data collection. The app contains modular inputs for data collection and requires Python.

Install the Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics to your search heads to enable search time operations.

(Optional) Install the Splunk App for AppDynamics on your search heads. The add-on is responsible for executing the REST calls and collecting the data from AppDynamics. The app provides the dashboards and saved searches. If you are using this add-on together with the Splunk ITSI Module for Application Performance Monitoring, only the add-on is necessary for integration.

Standard Configuration

The Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics contains three input types:
- AppDynamics Summary
- Single API Call
- AppDynamics Analytics API

In most cases you will only need to use the AppDynamics Summary input.

If you are using this add-on together with the Splunk ITSI Module for Application Performance Monitoring, set your data collection interval to less than 300 seconds.

Start Searching

Once the Splunk Add-on for AppDynamics is installed and configured you can execute searches using:


Note: If your data is stored in an index that is not searched by default for your Splunk user, you will need to add the specific index to the Selected indexes in Access controls > Roles > [ROLE NAME]

Additional Optional Configuration

In some cases you may not want all of the Summary data or you may only need a very specifc metric for a single application. For these cases, use the AppDynamics Single API Call input type. In this case, you will also need to specify an application name, the url path and the specific metric path found in the AppDynamics Metric Browser.

  1. While in the AppDynamics Metric Browser, identify the metric you would like to capture and right-click to copy the "Full Path". This is the value you will use for an AppDynamics Single API Call data input.
  2. Click the Configure New Input button and select AppDynamics Single API Call
  3. Enter your API call parameters and save
  4. Now start searching using

AppDynamics Analytics Events API Call

This input provides the ability to query data from AppDynamics Analytics Events API. The inputs are very different from the other 2 inputs. This input requires your 'Global Account Name' as well an API Key to access the data. More details

More details on this API can be found here:

  • Click the Configure New Input button and select AppDynamics Analytics API
  • Enter your API call parameters and save
