There are two components to this solution

  1. The SAPninja data collection framework - This can be downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/sapninja and deployed on your target SAP system. Note - This is a reasonably involved process and will typically require your SAP/Basis administrators to perform this on your behalf.
  2. The Spunk app that can be downloaded from Splunk base

Once SAPninja has been deployed within your target SAP system and is collecting data, the two main ways of retrieving data from SAP into Splunk are:

  1. Scripted Input - A perl script (part of the SAPninja package) is placed on the Splunk indexer and a scripted input defined. This perl script initiates an RFC against the target SAP system
  2. File Indexing - SAPninja can be configured to dump performance data into files on the target SAP system. A Splunk universal forwarder can then index these files
