The "Moviri – Splunk Unix-Windows Extractor" connector extracts performance data of servers that is indexed by a Splunk instance in a standard fashion, and load it into BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization. It supports the following types of Splunk indexing:

  • Unix: servers that are monitored through the mechanism (pre-built inputs) made available by either the "Splunk for Unix and Linux" App (version 4.2 or greater) or the "Splunk Technology Add-on for Unix and Linux" (version 4.7 or greater). Those mechanisms populate the following source types that the connector queries to extract the data:
    • vmstat
    • cpu
    • df
    • iostat
    • interfaces
    • hardware
  • Windows: servers that are monitored by Splunk through the configurations made available by the built-in "Local performance monitoring" functionality, or the built-in "Remote performance monitoring" functionality. Those functionalities populate the following source types that the connector queries to extract the data:
    • Perfmon:*
    • WMI:Perfmon:*

The connector only imports data labelled with the supported source types.
 

Full list of configuration properties

The following are the specific settings valid for connector "Moviri – Splunk Unix-Windows Extractor", they are presented in the "Splunk – Unix and Windows" configuration tab.

Property Name

Value Type

Required?

Default

Description

Platforms to import

String

Yes

 

Specify if the connector has to extract Unix data, Windows data or both

Metric classes to import

String

Yes

 

Allow to restrict the data extraction to the following metric classes:

  • Cpu and Memory (Basic)
  • Logical Disk Performance (available to Windows data only)
  • Physical Disk Performance (available to Unix data only)
  • Logical Disk Occupation
  • Network Interface

Whitelist for indexes

String

No

 

A semicolon-separated list of Splunk indexes that represents the only indexes where to extract data from. * wild-char is supported on index names. Empty means no filtering.

Blacklist for indexes

String

No

 

A semicolon separated list of Splunk indexes that represents the indexes to be excluded from the data extraction.

Whitelist for hosts

String

No

 

A semicolon separated list of hosts that represents the only hosts whose data need to be extracted. Each item of the list can be a regular expression.

Blacklist for hosts

String

No

 

A semicolon separated list of hosts that represents the hosts whose data need to be excluded from the extraction. Each item of the list can be a regular expression.

Datasets managed by this integration

An ETL task that uses the 'Moviri – Splunk Unix-Windows Extractor', will only allow you to import the SYSDAT (System data) dataset.

BMC TrueSight Capacity Optimization entities and metrics

The connector will create a System of type "Generic" for each imported host. The following are the lists of populated metrics for Unix and Windows.

Metrics with * were previously custom, remapped as standard after v 2.3.00
