AWS Traffic Mirror to Splunk CLoud

New Member

Hello everyone,
is it possible to send traffic from AWS Traffic Mirror (AWS VPC feature) directly to the Splunk Cloud?
Or the mandatory approach is to have AWS instances that will act as a Stream forwarders.

Thanks!!!

Have you tried deploying a Splunk Universal Forwarder with the Splunk Stream TA, or a Splunk Stream Independent Stream Forwarder? If you use the Splunk Enterprise AMI which is available on the AWS marketplace, it will be a tad easier.

There are many ways to get AWS traffic visibility into Splunk. What are you trying to accomplish?

My intention was to use the Traffic MIrror AWS feature to send "wire data" to Splunk Cloud for furder analysis.
And I was trying to figure out is it possible to do it directly, without any additional forwarders.

Thanks!!!

As an alternative to "wire data" you may consider "VPC Flow logs". Is this an option for you?

If you'd like to consider ingesting VPC Flow Logs with NetFlow Optimizer, here is a link to deployment scenarios to match your Splunk deployment; https://bit.ly/2VkshVK. Please contact trials@netflowlogic.com if you have questions or need help.
