About the Content Pack for Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring

The IT Service Intelligence (ITSI) Content Pack for Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring provides the elements necessary to use ITSI monitoring tools to visualize and troubleshoot your Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring cloud services. The content pack includes predefined entity discovery searches paired with data from the Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring Add-on. The searches discover your AWS, Azure, and GCP instances within Infrastructure Monitoring and onboard them into ITSI as entities. Each service in the content pack has predefined key performance indicators (KPIs) that provide visibility into your Infrastructure Monitoring integrations.

The content pack also includes correlation searches that leverage ITSI Event Analytics to generate actionable events from those created by detectors in Infrastructure Monitoring. Preconfigured aggregation policies group these events into episodes for AWS, Azure, and GCP alerts. For more information about viewing and managing Infrastructure Monitoring events and episodes in ITSI, see Use the Content Pack for Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring.

Once you install and configure the content pack, use the service topology tree within ITSI to monitor multiple cloud providers all in one place. The following image shows the active service topology tree that monitors multiple cloud providers:

This image shows the final Infrastructure Monitoring service topology tree. Each service is green. The Azure Functions service is selected and the side bar shows the individual KPIs within the service.
