Welcome to Splunk for Industrial IoT.

Your entitlement for Splunk for Industrial IoT includes the following products:

These components work together in your deployment to help you get value from your industrial data.

This diagram shows the products included in a Splunk for Industrial IoT deployment in a typical deployment scenario. From left to right, the image shows the data flow through the deployment, from the sensors producing your industrial data to the forwarders that host the Splunk Add-on for OPC and other add-ons or custom configurations that help you ingest data, to the Splunk indexers that store your metrics and event data, making it available for search, to the Splunk search heads that run Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence and other apps that help you get value from your industrial data.


To deploy Splunk for Industrial IoT in your environment, follow the links on this page to find the installation instructions for each of the components.

Splunk Enterprise

Splunk Enterprise is a software platform that enables you to search, analyze, and visualize the data gathered from the components of your infrastructure. Splunk Enterprise takes in data from applications, sensors, devices, and so on. After you set up your data sources, Splunk Enterprise indexes the data stream and parses it into a series of individual events and metrics that you can view and search.

Download Splunk Enterprise at https://www.splunk.com/en_us/download/splunk-enterprise.html.

For instructions on how to install Splunk Enterprise, see the Splunk Enterprise Installation Manual.

Search and Reporting App

Splunk Enterprise includes the Search & Reporting App. Use the Search & Reporting App to navigate raw data in Splunk Enterprise, build custom dashboards, and create reports.

To get started with the Search & Reporting App, see the Splunk Enterprise Search Tutorial.

Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence

Splunk Industrial Asset Intelligence (IAI) extends the Splunk Enterprise platform with additional functionality for industrial use cases. Splunk IAI is an application that you can use to monitor asset health, alert on metric anomalies, create custom metrics, perform root cause analysis for issues across data sources, and measure overall equipment effectiveness in real time.
