Instana Performance Metrics Configuration


The installation consists of installing both the Instana Add-on for Splunk and the Instana App for Splunk.
- The Add-on is responsible for executing the rest API calls and collecting the data from Instana.
- The App provides a collection of dashboards and saved searches.

To install, navigate to Apps --> Manage Apps and select the “Install app from File” button. Specify the location of the file you downloaded and install it.


The Instana Add-on for Splunk contains a global configuration for your Instana account URL and API authorization token.

Enter those values on the Configuration tab in the Add-on. You will find the settings in the Add-On Settings tab.

Next, create a new Input for the data you wish to collect via the Inputs menu -> Create New Input option. Each Input requires 4 parameters:
- Input Name
- Pollling interval
- Splunk Index to use
- Instana search filter that you would like to run (you can copy this directly from Instana's search bar)

To retrieve metrics for all web applications and websites use this filter:
