About the Data Stream Processor
The Splunk Data Stream Processor (DSP) is a data stream processing service that processes data in real-time and sends that data to your platform of choice. During the processing stage, the Splunk DSP allows you to perform complex transformations and troubleshooting on your data before that data is indexed. Use the Data Stream Processor to do the following tasks on data-in-motion.
- Data aggregation: Aggregate data based on specific conditions.
- Data formatting: Format or organize data using various functions based on specified conditions.
- Data routing: Guarantee delivery of high-volume, high-velocity data to multiple destinations.
- Filtering: Filter or route noisy data to specific destinations.
For basic instructions on how to get started on these tasks, see the Splunk DSP use cases chapter.
