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:
There is also the real time business transaction streaming which is basically the same functionality as the plugin:
Finally, you can manipulate the REST interface to export the information that you want:
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 🙂
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.
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.
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..
