We are looking to log information off our fishing vessels into Splunk where the data is currently emitted over UDP within the vessel network. Using a Splunk forwarder I should be able to set up a UDP listener and enable the transmission to the backend Splunk service. Looking to compress the data being sent as well as generally it will be sent over Satellite.
Each NMEA event is prefixed with a '$' so it should be relatively easy to separate the events, there are numerous types of NMEA events so would be interested in how this was handled.
Also, want to log/alert access to certain geofences as there are locations we are not allowed to go, has anyone dabbled with this?
