I was wondering if an event was to occur for a piece of hardware such as changing, going down etc. is it possible to use Powershell create a script to run and pull logs from Splunk and export them to a file.
not exactly sure what you would like to achieve here.
can you elaborate?
how would you know a piece of hardware is down?
does that piece reports to splunk and you want the data from some point in time until the moment it was down?
you can leverage splunk internal capabilities and write an alert / saved search to trigger on the needed condition. from there you can export results to file, send email, execute scripts and more...
