Splunk Sink Connector
A sink connector for writing Apache Kafka records to Splunk via Splunk HTTP Event Collector(HEC). The connector supports in-flight data transformation and enrichment.- High scalability, allowing linear scaling, limited only by the hardware supplied to the Kafka Connect environment, high reliability via at-least-once delivery, and support for ingestion of Kafka Record headers.
Confluent Hub CLI installation
Use the Confluent Hub client to install this connector with:
confluent-hub install splunk/kafka-connect-splunk:2.0
Or download the ZIP file and extract it into one of the directories that is listed on the Connect worker's plugin.path configuration properties. This must be done on each of the installations where Connect will be run.
Once installed, you can then create a connector configuration file with the connector's settings, and deploy that to a Connect worker.
Confluent supports Splunk Sink connector version 1.1.1 and later, as part of a Confluent Platform subscription.
