The Splunk component provides access to Splunk using the Splunk provided client api, and it enables you to publish and search for events in Splunk.
Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:
| Endpoint || Description|
| stream || Streams data to a named index or the default if not specified. |
When using stream mode be aware of that Splunk has some internal buffer (about 1MB or so) before events gets to the index.
If you need realtime, better use submit or tcp mode.
| submit || submit mode. Uses Splunk rest api to publish events to a named index or the default if not specified. |
| tcp || tcp mode. Streams data to a tcp port, and requires a open receiver port in Splunk.|
When publishing events the message body should contain a SplunkEvent.
In this example a converter is required to convert to a SplunkEvent class.
| Endpoint || Description|
|normal || Performs normal search and requires a search query in the search option.|
|savedsearch|| Performs search based on a search query saved in splunk and requires the name of the query in the savedSearch option.|
camel-splunk creates a route exchange per search result with a SplunkEvent in the body.
| Name || Default Value || Context || Description |
|host || localhost || Both || Splunk host.|
|port || 8089 || Both || Splunk port|
| username || null || Both || Username for Splunk|
| password || null || Both || Password for Splunk|
| connectionTimeout || 5000 || Both || Timeout in MS when connecting to Splunk server|
| useSunHttpsHandler || false || Both || Use sun.net.www.protocol.https.Handler Https hanlder to establish the Splunk Connection. |
Can be useful when running in application servers to avoid app. server https handling.
| index || null || Producer || Splunk index to write to|
| sourceType || null || Producer || Splunk sourcetype arguement|
| source || null || Producer || Splunk source arguement|
| tcpReceiverPort || 0 || Producer || Splunk tcp receiver port when using tcp producer endpoint.|
| initEarliestTime || null || Consumer || Initial start offset of the first search. Required|
| earliestTime || null || Consumer || Earliest time of the search time window.|
| latestTime || null || Consumer || Latest time of the search time window.|
| count || 0 || Consumer || A number that indicates the maximum number of entities to return. |
Note this is not the same as maxMessagesPerPoll which currently is unsupported
| search || null || Consumer || The Splunk query to run|
| savedSearch || null || Consumer || The name of the query saved in Splunk to run|
Splunk operates on data in key/value pairs. The SplunkEvent class is a placeholder for such data, and should be in the message body
for the producer. Likewise it will be returned in the body per search result for the consumer.
Search Twitter for tweets with music and publish events to Splunk
To convert a Tweet to a SplunkEvent you could use a converter like
Search Splunk for tweets
Splunk comes with a variety of options for leveraging machine generated data with prebuilt apps for analyzing and displaying this.
For example the jmx app. could be used to publish jmx attributes, eg. route and jvm metrics to Splunk, and displaying this on a dashboard.
