Splunk Search

How to search a area based on a given lat/lon

Hi,

I have a requirement - the user will enter a lat,lon in the filter and expects Splunk to search the "nearby 10km" area on the geomap based on the entered latitude longitude. I looked at the Haversine app but while installing got: There was an error processing the upload.

Any ideas?

If you trying to install the 'havesine' app via splunk GUI and getting "There was an error processing the upload.Invalid app contents: archive contains more than one immediate subdirectory: and .haversine" error, this indicates that the folders have ".*" files which are being stopped by GUI.

You can download the app to a PC or a linux server and run the command :
1. extract the app using tar -zxvf haversine.tar.gz
2. find haversine/ -type f -name ".*" -print0 to see all "." files. [ there is a .haveshine file as well, which needs to be removed]
3. delete all the ".
" files and recreate the tar.gz file and try to install via the GUI or move the app to etc/apps and restart the splunk.

As far as I am aware, we only have havershine app which can give you the distance which you need for a given coordinates. Hope this helps.
