Fix Cisco Security Suite eStreamer data not populating problem


I found "Sourcefire IPS" section in Cisco Security Suite didn't have any data or chart populated.
Drill down a bit, it's because 2 macros relying on are referring to index=estreamer. In case of using eventgen, simulation data is output to index=main. If we're capturing eStreamer data and not specify index=estream, would also cause the same problem. I suggest Splunk would update the app and take away such dependence.

My interim solution is to have following macros.conf in local to override default macros.conf

definition = sourcetype=estreamer OR sourcetype=cisco:sourcefire

definition = sourcetype=client_check

There are two problems with Cisco Security Suite v312 using Cisco eStreamer eNcore addon for Splunk v300 (for FMC v6).
The first one is Cisco Security Suite expects logs in index called estreamer. The solution is create inputs.conf under opt/splunk/etc/apps/TA-eStreamer/local/

disabled = false
index = estreamer

[script://./bin/ start]
disabled = 0
index = estreamer

[script://./bin/ status]
disabled = 0
index = estreamer

The second problem is the macro used in Cisco Security Suite. The solution is to create etc/apps/Splunk_CiscoSecuritySuite/local/macros.conf

definition = index=estreamer

definition = `SfeS-index` sourcetype=cisco:estreamer:data

definition = `SfeS-index` sourcetype=cisco:estreamer:status
