FireEye Add-on for Splunk Enterprise: Why is some data from FireEye logs missing in the events indexed in Splunk?

New Member

Hi

We are getting FireEye logs in XML format over SYSLOG - TCP. I see some of the information is missing in the events in Splunk. Did anyone had this issue?

Event in splunk:

We figured out the issue and wanted to close the loop here. At this time, we still do not recommend sending events from the CM for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is loss of fidelity.

Please see our recommendation at the top of our details page on Splunkbase:

"Note: Send events from the LMS appliances -- not from the CM appliance"

If this advice changes, we will update the details page and add CM as a category on the main analytics dashboard. I hope that helps.

When you say "some data from FireEye logs missing"... Are you referring to the Splunk app dashboards not displaying all of the data contained within the XML packet? Or are you referring to the fact that some data did not make it over to the Splunk app?

Can we narrow the issue down to one of the following?
Display vs. Data sent

The data is not getting in to splunk

Can you send me an email via Help -> Send Feedback within the Splunk app so we can troubleshoot and then post the answer back here? Thanks.
