Getting Data In

Suggestions Please: REST Api, csv,html


Hello Members,

I would like to import/show data in a splunk dashboard.

This data is results from a mysql query run by php to create an html

page with the results in an html table. Most likely the easiest way to do this would be to write the data to a csv file, and use splunk forwarder to send the data to splunk. The data needs to be checked once a day.

I was wondering if there is a way to build a dashboard from the data via the splunk REST api, or import/forward the html page that get created from the mysql query. The query is run on a remote server. I looked at the splunk-sdk-python but its implementation is not user friendly - it requires docker, which I cannot get running for some reason.


I am open to any and all suggestions.
