Splunk for Windows app on Standalone instance


How to make Splunk Windows app work on Standalone Splunk instance?

I installed Windows add-on and Windows app on my machine but I do not see charts and graphs populated.

One of the requirements is to monitor all Windows services. How do I go ahead with this?

So, let's be sure we've got the right stuff installed: the older app was deprecated and isn't supported nor current now. The new app is this one: Splunk App for Windows Infrastructure.

You also need a current Splunk Add-on for Windows which is what's responsible for collecting and parsing the data the App for Windows Infrastructure uses. This should be a straightforward install for you since you are standalone (I.e. the usual way, using your "Manage Apps" section of Splunk).

Once you have them in place, there will probably e some configuration involved to tell it precisely what you actually want to collect out of all the things it COULD collect. That's here at the section of the docs Configure the Splunk Add-on for Windows.

All in all just take your time and follow the instructions carefully and you should be fine.
