R Language support?

Hi There,

For engineers who are familiar with R programming language, is there add-ons for R Language support?
e.g. Querying index data using R Language.

Has anyone tried to use R to query data from Splunk?

Thanks!

I can't claim to have any experience with "R" , but here are a few ideas.

There is no "R" SDK for Splunk , but I see that "R" has packages for binding to Java and Python , and there are SDK's for these languages.

And you can potentially use the Splunk REST API directly from "R" Code via an HTTP connection.

I've created an Splunk R app. It's really in a very early status so don't use it in production environment.

Description from http://apps.splunk.com/app/1735/:

This app provides a new Splunk search
language command 'r' that allows
passing data from Splunk to the
R-Engine for calculation and then
passing results back to Splunk for
further computation or visualization.

The app is open source: https://github.com/rfsp/r.

Please feel free to contribute. Please provide feedback, questions and suggestions!

But unfortunately 'Run' button does not work. Also 'runRdo' is unknown command!

I see Splunk ODBC in the app site. Can I use Splunk ODBC to connect between Splunk and R?? I have not tried this yet, but seems like it will work with Splunk ODBC + R + RODBC.

Hi if you were successful in implementing your suggestion, could you kindly tell how to achieve the splunk +Splunkodbc + R + Rodbc integration?

I want to pipe data from a splunk search into R studio for doing statistical analysis on the data. Thanks.
