Any experience out there with Splunk <--> Sharepoint?

I've often heard this considered, but am wondering if anyone has done actual work with one or the other or both of the following:

  • integrating Splunk views into a Sharepoint dashboard
  • collecting Sharepoint logs/data for analysis in Splunk

  • Sharepoint can easily display an IFrame: http://www.splunk.com/base/Documentation/latest/Developer/3rdParty, or you can query for data against the Splunk REST API
  • Sharepoint logs should be pretty straightforward to index as well using a Splunk forwarder agent on the Sharepoint server. There are Sharepoint-related logs everywhere in Windows, but you probably primarily need the IIS logs, the Windows Event Logs, and ASP.NET logs.

If you want the audit log from within SharePoint itself, it's a bit harder. You might be able to get them via scripted input, via database tracking, or via 3rd party add-in writing to Windows event logs (and from there to Splunk). It's a bit sales-oriented, but they have some information here that may be useful if you're trying to get those -- http://community.bamboosolutions.com/blogs/bambooteamblog/archive/2010/02/16/filling-the-gap-in-shar...
