Overview of modules in ITSI

Splunk IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) modules are built from a collection of metrics, entities, and service configurations. They help ITSI users understand and act on the data that comes from monitoring services within ITSI.

ITSI modules reduce time to insight and make your service data valuable. They provide entity discovery Key Performance Indicator (KPI) templates, metrics, and entity level drilldowns from your data. Each module contains a different framework of predefined metrics, entities, service configurations, and activity views. For information about installing modules, see Install and configure ITSI modules.

ITSI modules process data collected through the use of Splunk add-ons. Add-ons collect host, network, and other data from computers that you install them on, and map that data to a data model. Add-ons power the data underlying metrics and entities of each module.

ITSI interacts with modules through configuration files. ITSI consumes and processes these files and integrates the information across the app. For more information, see List of ITSI configuration files in the Administer Splunk IT Service Intelligence manual.

The following modules are shipped with ITSI:
