Configure monitor inputs for the Splunk Add-on for Symantec Endpoint Protection

The Splunk Add-on for Symantec Endpoint Protection monitors local dump files produced by your Symantec Endpoint Manager.

To configure this input, install a universal forwarder on the machine running Symantec Endpoint Manager. You must also know the path to your Symantec Endpoint Manager dump files.

Configure monitor inputs using configuration files

  1. On your Windows host, open or create the %SPLUNK_HOME%\etc\apps\Splunk_TA_symantec-ep\local\inputs.conf file.
  2. Without deleting anything that is already in the file, paste the following stanzas at the end of the file:
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:admin:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:behavior:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:agent:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:policy:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:scm_system:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:packet:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:proactive:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:risk:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:scan:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:security:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:agt_system:file
    disabled = false
    sourcetype = symantec:ep:traffic:file
    disabled = false
  3. In each stanza, replace <<path_to_temp_dump_file_directory>> with the path of your *.tmp dump files. The default directory is %SEPM_HOME%\data\dump, but your path may differ.
  4. Save the file.
  5. Restart the forwarder service.
  6. In Splunk Web, run the following search to make sure Splunk is ingesting data:

    sourcetype = symantec:ep
