Seems that better decision for this now is old good Google Maps app http://apps.splunk.com/app/368/#versionBox
Also what dissapointed me with new inbuilt maps that latitude and longitude are not defined from ipaddress field and that
here are a few lines of example xml to create a
map dashboard and to get latitude, longitude for ipaddress.
(assuming you have events of sourcetype, accesscombinedwcookie)
thanks! I was misled with description of iplocation command in documentation where were no mention of latitude or longitude:
"The IP address field, specified in ip-address-fieldname, is looked up in a database and location fields information is added to the event. The fields are country, city, metroCode, areaCode, region, postalCode."
Thanks. I'll look into the Google Maps app. I also agree that it is disappointing that built-in map is only supported in simple xml.
There is no attribute in the Splunk 6.0 simple xml to apply labels to your map markers; hoping for this enhancement in a future release.
