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.
Splunk DB Connect requirements
You must have Splunk DB Connect installed to a heavy forwarder 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 2.X and 3.X. For information about installing DB Connect, refer to Splunk DB Connect documentation.
If you do not want to collect inventory and performance data or Unified Auditing logs, 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.
- For Splunk Light system requirements, see System Requirements in the Splunk Light 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.
For information about installation locations and environments, see Install the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database.
