WebLogic + Splunk = Splunk for Oracle WebLogic Server
As many of you know, from our website and blogs, we Function1-ers provide world-class consulting services for a few Oracle enterprise products as well as Splunk. Having this unique blend of experience on the Function1 team, we often try to experiment with new ideas that would be helpful to both sets of clients. One such experiment has yielded our new 1.0 Beta release of the Splunk for Oracle WebLogic Server app.
If you are a frequent reader of our site, then you may recall that we had hinted at the new app in a previous blog. We have officially published the 1.0 Beta release to SplunkBase and you can check it out here: http://splunk-base.splunk.com/apps/72283/splunk-for-oracle-weblogic-server
From the beginning, this incredibly comprehensive app was designed to uphold the standard of an enterprise class application. It is highly dynamic in the way data is extracted from WebLogic (using Python, Jython, and WLST) and is methodically restructured into a format that is natively understood by a Splunk Indexer without additional process overhead at index time. The web UI is intuitive, starting with a Topology view that allows the user to toggle between a domain view and an application view perspective.
On Splunkbase, the app is presented as a bundled package with our own TA, Install Guide, and supporting documentation. As promised, the purchase price is a striking $0.00. We are currently providing support to an exclusive set of customers who have been given a pre-release (pre-splunkbase) version, and will continue to support them as well as any other customer that downloads from Splunkbase.
The app is available for free, so please give it spin and send us feedback on any issues or new features that you would like. This is an exciting time for Function1, as we hope this will be the first of many Splunk apps to come!
