Before you configure the Delphix Engine you will need to configure and make a note of the following in Splunk:
Supported Splunk versions
Delphix only supports Splunk Enterprise 6.3.0 or higher.
In the Splunk web UI Enable SSL (this is optional but best practice for security) in your global HTTP Event Collector (HEC) settings.
The Splunk hostname or IP Address.
The HEC Port number for your Splunk instance (default 8088).
Enable the HTTP Event Collector on Splunk, and create a new HEC Token with a new Splunk index set as an allowed index for the token. Make sure Enable Indexer Acknowledgement is unchecked for the token. Warning : If you wish, you can use a separate Splunk index for performance and capacity metrics (otherwise, the same index will be used for both events and metrics). If you are using Splunk 7.0+, it is recommended that you create this second index as a special “Metrics” type index that is optimized for indexing and searching metrics data.
Note the HEC Token Value and the Allowed Indexes for the token.
The following table provides an example of the data you will need.
Splunk Server IP address
Splunk Server HEC Port Number
Splunk HEC Token
Index Name for Events
Index Name for Metrics
Configuring Delphix for Splunk
Log in to the Delphix Server Setup UI as the sysadmin.
From the Preferences menu select Fluentd Configuration.
In the Fluentd Configuration window, enter your Splunk values, using the default splunkHec plugin configuration.
Splunk hostname or IP address
The TCP port number for the Splunk HTTP Event Collector (HEC)
The token for the Splunk HTTP Event Collector (HEC)
The Splunk Index events will be sent to. It must be set as an allowed index for the HEC token.
The Splunk Index metrics will be sent to. If none is specified then the Main Index will be used for metrics as well. It must be set as an allowed index for the HEC token.
Events Push Frequency
The frequency at which the Events will be pushed to Splunk. Specified in seconds.
Metrics Push Frequency
The frequency at which the Performance Metrics will be pushed to Splunk. Specified in seconds
What protocol to use (HTTP or HTTPS) when connecting to Splunk. Must match your HTTP Event Collector settings in Splunk.
4. Click Save to enable the Splunk configuration and begin sending all new Actions, Job Events, Faults, Alerts, and Metrics to your Splunk instance.
