Splunk® Supported Add-ons

Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database

Hardware and software requirements for the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database

Splunk admin requirements

To install and configure the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database, you must be member of the admin or sc_admin role.

Database user must have at least Connect permission to the database and Select permission to the respective table in order to collect the data via Splunk DB Connect:

  • For Connect permission: grant connect to {username}
  • For Select permission on respective table: grant select on {table_name} to {username}

Oracle Database setup requirements

  • You must have Splunk DB Connect installed to your heavy forwarders or single instance Splunk Enterprise in order to collect data for inventory and performance events with this add-on. This version of the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database works with DB Connect version 3.X. For information about installing DB Connect, refer to Splunk DB Connect documentation.
  • Unified Auditing has to be enabled in Oracle Database.
  • If you do not want to collect data based on database entries, you do not need to install DB Connect and thus you can use a universal or light forwarder instead of a heavy forwarder for your monitor inputs. In this scenario, do not include any of the DB Connect-dependent input stanzas in your local/inputs.conf, or you will see errors on startup.

Splunk platform requirements

Because this add-on runs on the Splunk platform, all of the system requirements apply for the Splunk software that you use to run this add-on.

  • For Splunk Enterprise system requirements, see System Requirements in the Splunk Enterprise Installation Manual.
  • If you are managing on-premises forwarders to get data into Splunk Cloud, see System Requirements in the Splunk Enterprise Installation Manual, which includes information about forwarders.
