I already have a source of gauged metrics accessible by http. How can Splunk PULL those?

I cannot PUSH those metrics. They look like this when the endpoint is invoked:

metric_a 10.0
metric_b 0.02
metric_c v.12

The metrics are evaluated at the point of invocation. There is no log file (nor do I want to log to a file).

I can change the format of the http response. For example it could resemble a log4j output or some json structure...

Does Splunk support this out of the box? which version? Do i need a 3rd party plugin? what do you recommend?

cheers

the simplest solution is to go for a scripted input and invoke the api as a python batch script.
look it up here - https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.3.0/AdvancedDev/ScriptedInputsIntro
