I dont have any exp with Kafka but we need to send data from Kafka to Splunk.
I am reading documentation but dont understand what we need to do.
Ok, HEC on Splunk and configure HEC options. But what with .jar (or how to build Docker). Do we need to "build .jar" and than put it into Kafka plugin folder or is there some way that we build connector that will connect to Kafka (like for example Redis or RabbitMQ, like middleware).
I've also started "putting on paper" my journey with Splunk Connect for Kafka here: http://isbyr.com/splunk-connect-for-kafka/ still work in progress, but might help a bit (though nothing about docker, as I was using "plain" VMs)
