Scalable Vector Graphics - Custom Visualization

Splunk AppInspect Passed
Admins: Please read about Splunk Enterprise 8.0 and the Python 2.7 end-of-life changes and impact on apps and upgradeshere.
Build any visualization directly with Search Processing Language (SPL) using Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), includes reusable battery, truck and counter examples.

Scalable Vector Graphics - Custom Visualization allows Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) text generated from Splunk's Search Processing Language (SPL) to be displayed in a dashboard.

Generate any SVG text (statically or dynamically) and put the result into the svg_viz field so the visualisation can display it.

Select the SVG vizualization to display the svg_viz field as a SVG image.

The app contains different dashboard examples showing what can be created with the SVG visualisation.

Example dashboards in menu

  • "SVG Examples" / "How Tos" / "Playground" - for simple SVG shapes
  • "SVG Examples" / "Showcase" - quick examples of what can be done with this visualization
  • "SVG Examples" / "Infrastrucuture Monitoring" - dynamic value/indicators embedded infrastrucutre diagram
  • "SVG Examples" / "Where's Wally? (Waldo)" - dynamic map showing locations of people

The app contains macros to display pre-canned battery and counters visualisations.

Example dashboards in menu using SVG macros

  • "SVG Examples" / "Battery with Percentages" - percentage value displayed on battery, for example percentage charged
  • "SVG Examples" / "Battery with Bars" - use bars on a battery instead of percentages
  • "SVG Examples" / "Circles and Squares" - alternative ways to display counters / text

Drilldowns are not supported per se but linking to other urls can be done via adding href links inside the SVG using the syntax <a href="{url_to_link_to}">{svg_tags}</a>

SVG visualizations can be printed directly from the browser or via Export -> Print on the dashboard.

Painting a Picture with Splunk provides an introduction to this app.

The .conf18 session "Visualize This, Mother Trucker" covers in detail what can be done with this app.
1. Visualize This, Mother Trucker - Recording
2. Visualize This, Mother Trucker - Slides

Known Issues

  1. Very large SVG text cannot be viewed from the dashboard via the magnifying glass
  2. No PDF generation available. See "Limitations to PDF generation" on for details
