How to configure EventGent at Splunk CloudTrial ?

New Member

Hi,
I read the tutorial about enventgen and I started a Splunk Cloud Trial, but I don´t see the way to get in the eventgen configuration. From my experience , I think that I should have a IP address to open a session with Putty and use vi and others tools to make the configuration, but I can´t see how.

Thanks
Nelson

Eventgen App is not to be loaded on to production environment - On prem OR Cloud. If this is just a testing/trials, please raise a case with Splunk cloud support to load Eventgen app to your trail instance. Once eventgen app is loaded, on your Splunk heavy forwarder, you can create an app or use search app and create your custom sample file, eventgen.conf and inputs.conf to generate events for your use case. This can then be seen in your cloud UI.
