Hello all, I'm a new splunk user and I'm not familiar yet with all its features. I have a rather unusual(or not) thing in mind to do with splunk.
I have a jboss application server log, in which I have all request towards 3rd party service logged. Each request has requestId which could be extracted.
I want to use those extracted requestIds to query the 3rd party service database and to compare the results which I get with those in my log.
I realize that I'll have to do some scripting to do this, my question is : is splunk overhead for this? or I'd be better of writing some script for this.
Anyone had similar expiriences?
You can use splunk to pull entries from a database, but it will require the input you setup be a scripted input. So, yes, you can do it. However, as you suspected, it will require some scripting to do accomplish the task.
There have been a few posts about this over the last week which I find you'll probably find to be helpful and applicable to your particular scenario.
