Is there a documented way of archiving Tivoli Netcool polling data in Splunk?

I have used other NMS systems to pipe to Splunk before for historical reporting. And I am sure that it can be done with Tivoli, but I am not sure where to start.

Right now, the use case is to index Interface statistics into splunk for reporting.

If anyone can help it would AWESOME.

The Splunk for Tivoli Netcool App is designed to forward all data from the object server into Splunk. Polls, traps, syslog, CORBA, socket, TL1, and the myriad other probes that feed the object server can all be Splunk'd. After they have been processed, you can determine your retention policy and archive old data as outlined here http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Indexer/Automatearchiving

In a nutshell you need to install the app on your Splunk platform, install the Splunk UF and Tech-Add ons onto your object server, and configure the flat file gateway (nco_g_file) to write the events.
