Upgrade the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database

Upgrade from 3.3.0 and earlier versions to 3.5.0 or later

Version 3.5.0 and later of the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database is designed to be used with Splunk DB Connect v2. Splunk DB Connect v1 continues to be supported, but upgrading to DB Connect v2 is recommended. The new source types in this version can only be collected using DB Connect v2.

If you are a DB Connect v2 user and are upgrading the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database from version 3.3.0 and earlier to 3.5.0 or later and want to start collecting the new performance events (for use with the Splunk IT Service Intelligence app or otherwise), copy the input stanzas for the new source types, oracle:connections, oracle:pool:connections, oracle:database:size, oracle:table, oracle:user, oracle:query, and the updated input stanzas for oracle:session, oracle:sysPerf, and oracle:instance, from dbx2.inputs.conf.template to your DB Connect v2 input.conf file and modify as necessary for your environment.

If you are a DB Connect v1 user and you want to upgrade the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database from version 3.3.0 and earlier to 3.5.0 or later to begin collecting the new performance events available in this release or integrate your Oracle data with the IT Service Intelligence app, you must first upgrade to DB Connect v2.

If you are a DB Connect v1 user and you are upgrading the Splunk Add-on for Oracle Database from version 3.3.0 and earlier to 3.5.0 and later and want to continue to collect events for the source types you have already been collecting, you need to edit the transforms.conf file as described in the Set up the database connection section to make sure it contains the correct lines to work with DB Connect v1 since the transforms.conf file is designed to work with DB Connect v2 by default in this release.
