About Splunk DB Connect

Splunk DB Connect lets you enrich and combine your machine data with database data. You can use the app to configure database queries and lookups in minutes via the Splunk Web interface.

Quickly deploy Splunk Enterprise for real-time machine data collection, indexing, analysis, and visualization. Then use Splunk DB Connect to import and index the data already stored in your database to gain more insight.

Furthermore, database lookups let you reference fields in an external database that match fields in your event data. Using these matches, you can add more meaningful information and searchable fields to enrich your event data.

Hi, <br /><br />DB Connect version 1.x does not support Greenplum or Oracle Timesten. Our development team is evaluating the possibility of including support for these in our forthcoming update of the app.
