Hi Wai,

If you want to stream data other than the business transactions and UEM data, you would have to engineer a solution as there are no options provided by Dynatrace. There is a Splunk receivers stream that could be used to send data to Splunk.

http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.1.1/RESTAPI/RESTinput#receivers.2Fstream

For example, You could try scheduling a report from Dynatrace to be saved to a local directory (as a CSV or XML) and then use the receivers stream to load the text up to Splunk.

Thanks,

David Nicholls

has anyone successfully imported a splunk dashboard into multiple events? I can get the xml data into splunk using REST data input but is one event. This is keeping me from extracting or associating metric values with the correct measure..

The solution I had was to create a dashboard, usually containing a dynamic measure matrix, with the measures I wanted to import and run a CRON job to query the AppMon rest API on an interval and get the dashboard in CSV MWRT format to import into Splunk :)

Hello Suraj,

There are a few options for forwarding Dynatrace data to Splunk:

There is a plugin that is designed to send data splunk, you can read up on it here:

https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/DL/Splunk+Application

There is also the real time business transaction streaming which is basically the same functionality as the plugin:

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/doc/appmon/integrations-and-extensions/realtime-streaming/

Finally, you can manipulate the REST interface to export the information that you want:
