Splunk® Data Stream Processor

Connect to Data Sources and Destinations with DSP

On April 3, 2023, Splunk Data Stream Processor reached its end of sale, and will reach its end of life on February 28, 2025. If you are an existing DSP customer, please reach out to your account team for more information.

All DSP releases prior to DSP 1.4.0 use Gravity, a Kubernetes orchestrator, which has been announced end-of-life. We have replaced Gravity with an alternative component in DSP 1.4.0. Therefore, we will no longer provide support for versions of DSP prior to DSP 1.4.0 after July 1, 2023. We advise all of our customers to upgrade to DSP 1.4.0 in order to continue to receive full product support from Splunk.

Connecting Amazon Kinesis Data Streams to your DSP pipeline as a data destination

When creating a data pipeline in the , you can connect to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams and use it as a data destination. You can get data into a pipeline, transform it, and then send the transformed data to a Kinesis data stream.

To connect to Kinesis as a data destination, you must complete the following tasks:

  1. If the stream that you want to send data to does not already exist in your Kinesis instance, create it. For information about creating a stream, search for "Creating a Stream" in the Amazon Kinesis Data Streams Developer Guide.

    If you try to send data to a stream that does not already exist, the pipeline will fail to send data to Kinesis after retrying the operation several times.

  2. Create a connection that allows DSP to send data to your Kinesis data stream. See Create a DSP connection to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams.
  3. Create a pipeline that ends with the Send to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams sink function. See the Building a pipeline chapter in the Use the Data Stream Processor manual for instructions on how to build a data pipeline.
  4. Configure the Send to Amazon Kinesis Data Streams sink function to use your Kinesis connection and send data to an existing stream. See Send data to Amazon Kinesis in the Function Reference manual.

When you activate the pipeline, the sink function starts sending data from the pipeline to the specified Kinesis data stream.

If your data fails to get into Kinesis, check the connection settings to make sure you have the correct credentials and Amazon Web Services (AWS) region for your Kinesis data stream.
