Spring Integration Splunk Adaptors Webinar
With the introduction of our various programming language SDK’s (Java, JS, Python,PHP,Ruby) for the Splunk REST API , we have significantly lowered the barrier of entry for developers wanting to build big data apps and integrations on top of the Splunk platform.Developers can now choose their preferred development language and right out the blocks focus on coding their core business logic without having to worry about the lower level semantics of REST , the SDK’s make this easy.
And that is after all why we build tools and frameworks in the first place , to make it simpler for you to perform some task and get to that point of productivity faster.
Building upon this ideal, if an…

Splunk SDK for Ruby now in Public Preview
Another day in the life of SplunkDev and another SDK under Splunk’s Developer Platform.
Splunk SDK for Ruby is now publicly available. Thanks to the every one in the external Ruby community for their feedback and their contribution to the open source project!
So what can you do with the SDK? Below are some highlights:
Diving into the new Splunk App Framework
As mentioned in previous posts, the recently-released preview of the new Splunk App Framework allows developers to draw from the power of modern web programming to create new and exciting applications built on Splunk. I’m really excited about all the new abilities the framework provides, and I think it will help usher in some really awesome Splunk Apps.
When I first got my hands on the framework, I wanted to show off how quickly and easily a web developer, such as myself, could use standard web technologies to make a simple yet compelling dashboard for Splunk.
Let’s get started!
If you haven’t already, you’ll first need to grab the Splunk App Framework from GitHub. To get yourself set…

Splunk Hadoop Connect 1.1 – Opening the door to MapR; now available on all Hadoop distributions
I am happy to announce that Splunk Hadoop Connect 1.1 is now available. This version of Hadoop Connect rounds out Splunk’s integration with the Hadoop distributions by becoming certified on MapR. Cloudera, Hortonworks, and Apache Hadoop distributions also have the ability to benefit from the power of Splunk.
Splunk Hadoop Connect provides bi-directional integration to easily and reliably move data between Splunk and Hadoop. It provides Hadoop users the ability to gain real-time analysis, visualization and role based access control for a stream of machine-generated data. It delivers three core capacities: Export data from Splunk to Hadoop, Explore Hadoop directories and Import data from Hadoop to Splunk.
The most significant new feature added…
Indexing PCAP header data in Splunk
I am often asked, “can i store pcap headers in splunk ?”. My response is a somewhat useless, “that’s easy”. To which the inquirer says, “if its so easy, show me; right now”. Ok. Fair point
We’ll do all this from the command line but first a quick overview:
- Create a new index, pcaphead,
- Create a splunk listener, udp 5000.
- Run tcpdump to print the headers
- Use netcat to send the headers to Splunk
- Run a Splunk search.
This is what it looks like on the command line.

Splunk4Good presents at the White House! #FEMAThinkTank wrapup
StudentRND’s 1st Code Day SF = success
Splunk4Good’s new intern, Carol Silva, told you recently how excited we were to be sponsoring and hosting StudentRND‘s 1st Code Day SF here at Splunk HQ over President’s Day weekend. I knew it was going to be great, but I had to blog myself to share how absolutely wowed I was at the epic success of this event!
Saturday morning as Tyler Menezes and Chris Engelbrecht from StudentRND finished setting up, the first few kids starting filtering into the Splunk Dev space, all with laptops and some with fancy gaming accessories or sleeping bags in hand. I had my first indicator things were going to be epic when before the keynote even began there was…
