Adding Python 3 libraries
Version 5.0.0 and higher of the Machine Learning Toolkit (MLTK) requires version 2.0 of the Python for Scientific Computing add-on, version 8.0 of Splunk Enterprise, and Python 3.
Users on this version or above of the Machine Learning Toolkit have the option to add Python 3 libraries as a means to enhance their machine learning efforts.
Support is not offered on the use of or upgrade of any Python 3 libraries added to your Splunk platform instance. Any upgrade to MLTK or the PSC add-on will overwrite any Python library changes.
Follow these steps to add a Python 3 library to your instance of the MLTK:
- Clone the GitHub repo for the Python for Scientific Computing add-on: https://github.com/splunk/Splunk-python-for-scientific-computing.git
- Navigate to https://repo.anaconda.com/pkgs/ to check the list of packages supported through Anaconda. You can only add packages listed on this site.
- In GitHub, choose the package you need and add it in
- Specify the version of the package in
package.txt. The latest version is selected by default.
bash repack.shto create the environment and install the package within the environment.
- When the repacking in complete, run the
bash build.shscript which creates a .tgz file for the PSC add-on. On Windows, run a
- In your Splunk platform instance (not in the Splunk CLI or web installer) extract the .tgz file.
The final .tgz app stores in the build directory.
