Pre-defined Data Models

New Member

Does anybody know if there are pre-defined or common data models that are documented somewhere that could be used as a guide to assist with building data models for those of us who are less familiar with that process?

For example, I would think there are numerous common data sources where a basic guide could be created to walk users who are new to Splunk 6 through the process of building a usable data model.

These common data sources could include things such as:

  • Cisco ASA logs
  • Microsoft domain controller security event logs
  • Web filter logs, such as from a Cisco Ironport or Barracuda web filter
  • Network infrastructure devices, such as Cisco switch and router logs

These are just a few, but it could be useful as a starting point to get users familiar with the process of creating and using data models in Splunk 6.

Thank you,
