New Member

Hi All,

I am looking for MQTT integration with splunk enterprise. I tried MQTT modular input but its very unstable sometime it works and sometime it dont.

can anybody suggest me some other alternative where I can pull out IOT-Device info or values into splunk instance

I have got advantech IOT devices and I am trying to get analog data into splunk in json format.!

Thanks.!

I have, quite extensively, used HTTP Event Collector to get IoT data into Splunk. Many IoT services will allow you to set up an API connection. If the service can do HTTP POST, then no problem, just point it at <your-splunk-instance>:8088/services/collector/raw with header "Authorization: Splunk <token>".

If the service requires HTTP GET, you could use this REST API addon from Splunkbase (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/1546/), or you could build your own with addon-builder (https://splunkbase.splunk.com/app/2962/), or you can do what I usually do, which is to set up a logic app in Azure, to handle all the API calls. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/logic-apps/

Anyways, getting IoT data into Splunk should be easy.
