Getting Data In

Splunk as Datasource for Grafana?

Hello,

I'd like to import data from Splunk into Grafana so I can use Grafana's visualization and Splunk as a data source. Has anyone managed to do that without purchasing the premium grafana-splunk plugin? It wouldn't need advanced gui functionality like the official plugin, just the ability to feed a splunk search string in and get event data back out.

Thanks

The only way I know to do this is with the (paid) Grafana Plugin, https://grafana.com/grafana/plugins/grafana-splunk-datasource

I know that both @dwaddle and @johnvr have done this so perhaps one or the other will share.

@gabenav11 by Premium plugin, do you mean Splunk plugin for Grafana? Which specific visualization in Grafana do you want to use which you do not see in Splunk? Could you please provide details on your actual use case for the community to assist you better?

@niketnilay thanks for the reply. Yes, I mean that plugin.

I need to create a graph that is more or less a timechart count with a 1week timewrap over about 10weeks, with overlay lines for averages and upper 75th and lower 25th percentile lines, averaged across all weeks, to check for unusual activity.

I know that graph can be made in Splunk, it's more like for business reasons that we want the visualization in Grafana.

thanks again!
