Add-on to monitor and parse Splunk configuration files.
This TA can be installed on all Splunk components including Universal Forwarders. This TA should be installed and configured on all components where configuration change tracking is desired.
This TA must be installed on Indexers and intermediate HFs, as it contains index-time transforms.
This TA must be installed on Search Heads, as it comes bundled with important KOs for viewing the indexed configuration data.
> Note: The app in this repo comes pre-configured with files in
local/. The version on SplunkBase is not preconfigured, and requires the following manual steps.
You can use local/*.conf files in this repo as templates to cofngiure the app in your environment.
Create an index (local/indexes.conf) if you do not wish to ingest these logs into main. (recommended)
Create local/macros.conf and override the
conf_files_index to point at the index you chose in the step above.
Create local/inputs.conf to designate the index and enable the inputs.
By default, Splunk logs changes in the
$SPLUNK_HOME/etc/ directory every 10 minutes. In some cases, it may be desirable to do this more frequently, to ensure that no filechanges are missed. If this is desired, add the following to local/inputs.conf:
[fschange:$SPLUNK_HOME/etc] #poll every 30 seconds pollPeriod = 30
This change can cause added load on the system. Ensure you are comfortable with that before implementing this change.
This TA exposes potentially sensitive information to users. This includes any passwords/tokens/usernames contained within conf files on the instance.
It is highly recommended that the index this TA uses be made accessible soley to administrators to prevent information disclousre to unauthorised parties.
