I am relatively new to Splunk for searching logs and completely new to Developing apps in Splunk. I am looking to build real time web services traffic information such as Average Response time, Errors per interval and Invocations per interval for Java Web service running in tomcat. Are there any apps that is already written for this purpose.
Can you please provide me pointers on how to get the above information?
Many Splunk customers use Splunk for JMX for monitoring Tomcat instances.
It is not monitoring the server and user logs , but it can be used to monitor all of the JVM metrics, Tomcat metrics and any User defined Metrics that are exposed via JMX attributes and operations.
There are loads of JMX attributes in the various MBeans of the "Catalina" JMX domain that will be useful for you (errorcount, requestcount, totalprocesssingtime, requestmintime, requestmaxtime, session metrics, all sorts of stuff etc.. )
