i'm working on a master thesis wich splunk ist one of the software. I don't have very much experiance with splunk so i have some problems.
I want have some log datas from 3 produkts. I don't want use SNMP traps or syslog. So I have taken the folder analyse option. But there i have te big problem, that i could's get the informations.
Therefor I have the question if it is possible to get the information on that way or if someone know how i can get this data?
The Produkts are:
Avira Small Business Suite
Fortinet Analyzer 100C
Backup Exec Small Business Suite
HP Insight Manager
Thank you very much!
basically you can add anything into splunk, like it is written in the docs
so if you have a non-binary log file of any of those application, splunk can read and index it for you.
as MuS says, Splunk will index any non-binary data. if you're testing it on new data, i'd recommend using a test index so you can iteratively try out different input configurations:
