How to configure Splunk to monitor all Cisco switches, routers, and firewalls in our network?

New Member

I'm new to the Splunk tool. I heard very good feedback about Splunk and I want to implement in our company. I want to monitor our network using Splunk. The documentation provided on the Splunk website was not clear to me for configuring the Cisco router, switches, and firewalls. I would like to know the step by step process to configure my Cisco routers, switches, and firewalls.
Appreciate if you can provide me any detailed document with examples to set up the environment. What are the details required to configure my switches, routers and firewalls into Splunk, and how do I authenticate with Splunk?

Early response is highly appreciated.

This entry from Splunk Blogs might help too as it has an example with Cisco ASA and Syslog-NG:

In terms of Splunk add-ons you probably need the following:
