Hunk Kafka use case

New Member

Dear All,

This is related to Hunk Kafka integration use cases. My question is NOT on how to connect to Kafka from Splunk/Hunk UI.

My understanding is current Splunk forwarders stream data to Splunk indexer - which is $ amount eventually

But is there any Splunk forwarder that can steam data to Kafka queues and eventually to Hadoop - then through Virtual Indexer search Hadoop data in Splunk UI - is there any such Splunk forwarder?

What are the best practices in managing the data in Splunk in a cost effective way.

Thanks,

In the above question last paragraph I mean "What are the best practices in managing the data in Splunk / Hunk / Hadoop setup in a cost effective way."
