The Splunk Add-on for Kafka allows the Splunk platform to consume topic messages from Apache Kafka using modular inputs (DEPRECATED: Please use Splunk Connector for Kafka instead of modular input for event collection). The add-on can also collect performance metrics and log files using JMX and file monitoring. After the Splunk platform indexes the events, you can analyze the data using the prebuilt panels included with the add-on. This add-on provides the inputs and CIM-compatible knowledge to use with other Splunk apps, such as Splunk Enterprise Security and the Splunk App for PCI Compliance.
