Splunk® Supported Add-ons

Splunk Add-on for Linux

Configure TCP inputs in CollectD for the Splunk Add-on for Linux

You can collect data from any TCP port. You can use this method to capture data from various network services such as syslog or netcat.

You cannot collect metrics by TCP. To collect metrics, you must use HEC. See Configure HEC inputs to use metrics data.

Configure the TCP inputs for Linux using Splunk Web

  1. Click Settings > Data Inputs > TCP.
  2. Define a new data input and set the source type to linux:collectd:graphite. The mapping and dashboard panels are dependent on this source type.

For more information on how to configure data inputs, see Configure your inputs.

For more detailed guidelines on how to get data inputs from TCP ports, see Get data from TCP and UDP ports.

If you need to validate your data input configuration, see Validate data collection.
