Has someone ever tried to implements Graphs or at least data from Graphite into a Splunk Dashboard? How can we do that? We would like to compare a Splunk timechart with a Graphite Graph on the same Dashboard. And we don´t want to import the data from graphite into Splunk, just use Splunk as a Dashboard.
You could do this with the Splunk 6 web framework. Create a dashboard, convert it to HTML, and then do whatever you want to in the HTML to integrate your Graphite stuff. I don't have any experience with Graphite to explain that part.
And if you do want to take data that you are already sending to Carbon/Graphite, but send it to Splunk instead, it's trivial to read the same data format in Splunk. I wrote a blog post on the topic which explains the steps, which you'll see are pretty simple.
I installed collectd on the client machine which already has the splunk forwarder running on it.
Host "188.8.131.52" #indexer ip
and on the indexer, i allowed the port 10001.
/opt/splunk/bin/splunk enable listen 10001 -auth admin:*******
But i am not getting the results from the client machine. Also, client shows the following error
collectd: write_graphite plugin: send to 184.108.40.206:10001 (tcp) failed with status -1 (Broken pipe).
