I'm trying to ingest various kinds of data to learn as much as I can about Splunk data ingestion as possible. My latest attempt is with my Mountain Biking data, downloaded in GPX file format from Strava.
The format looks like the below...just with a bunch more events, roughly every 10 seconds, that capture Lat, Lon, and elevation.
There are a couple of challenges here for me:
I assume that I need to associate the field, which only appears once per file, with every event in the file so Splunk will rightly understand that all of the Lat, Lon, Ele combination events apply to the proper ride. How can I do this?
As a corollary to the above, is it possible to have the field become the SOURCE value (rather than the name of the source file)?
OK, so maybe just one challenge with a couple of parts to it. 🙂

I'm looking for some help in setting up the REST API Modular Input to collect data from Automatic's API so I can demo the automobile diagnostic and driving information to customers.
I have created the Application via Automatic's developer environment, created the Client ID and Secret, I've downloaded the REST API Modular Input add-on, and I'm going through the process of setting up the Data Input in Splunk, but I'm unsure what else is required before I can start receiving the data properly.
Anyone care to help a novice Splunker?
