Get your metrics and alarms data in to Splunk IAI
As a Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence (IAI) admin, you are responsible for getting the metrics and alarms data from industrial assets and systems in your organization into Splunk Enterprise so that you can monitor and analyze it with Splunk IAI.
In order for your data to display and function as expected in Splunk IAI, it must meet the requirements of the IoT common information model. For more about these requirements, see Data format requirements for Splunk IAI.
Several purpose-built solutions are available to help you meet these data format requirements when you ingest your data. The method you use to get your data in depends on the systems you are using. Use the table to select the method that best fits your situation.
