How to run and Display output of a perl script in splunk ?

Contributor

Hi,

I have a complex perl script which provides the distribution of response time and success/failure for our endpoints.
Now we want to accomplish this using Splunk and display its output in a dynamic way.

According to me their are two options:
1. Writing Splunk query to replace perl script. Which is very difficult and not replicable method.
2. Running the script from splunk and displaying its output on screen. Now i know that we need to create custom commands for this. But i don't have any idea about that. Wasn't able to find any material also for that.

Kindly advise.

Are you trying to run the script in a search ad-hoc or trying to schedule its execution and index the results?

Here are the docs entry points for either:
