Splunk Supporting Add-on for Active Directory: How to introduce this as a suitable metric for a metric index

Path Finder

Hello,
I have chosen "Splunk supporting Add-on for Active Directory" to perform LDAP search to my Fedora Directory Server.
Now I would like to monitor the parameters inside cn=monitor.
A search like:

 | ldapsearch domain=myLDAP search="(&(objectclass=*))" basedn="cn=monitor" scope=sub

Provides a pretty json formatted event:

The big question is:
How to introduce this in a metric suitable for a metric index

I tried some tricks with mcollect, but it doesn't seem very easy.
Could you help me?

Thank you very much
Marco

Hi,

this requires quite some work to do. 🙂
I'd suggest building a Data Model instead. Easier to manage and better extensible.

A metrics index requires specific fields to be set. Read more about it here:https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.0/Metrics/GetStarted#Metrics_data_format
