Splunk Lantern



Apache freely-available, enterprise-grade projects are some of the most visible and widely used applications in computing today. Apache Projects are defined by collaborative, consensus-based processes; an open, pragmatic software license; and a desire to create high quality software that leads the way in its field. 

  • Apache web server access logs provide information about requests coming in to the web server, including what pages people are viewing, the success status of requests, and how long the server took to respond. Apache web server error logs provide information about errors the web server encountered when processing requests, as well as diagnostic information about the server itself. In the Common Information Model, Apache Web Server data can be mapped to Web data model in Splunk's Common Information Model.
  • Apache Kafka is a distributed event store and stream-processing platform. It is an open-source system developed by the Apache Software Foundation written in Java and Scala. The project aims to provide a unified, high-throughput, low-latency platform for handling real-time data feeds.
  • The Splunk integration with Hadoop allows you to seamlessly search and analyze Hadoop-based data as part of your Splunk Enterprise deployment. You can:
    • Interactively query raw data by previewing results and refining searches using the same Splunk Enterprise interface
    • Quickly create and share charts, graphs and dashboards
    • Ensure security with role-based access control and HDFS pass-through authentication

Additional integrations specifically for Splunk Observability Cloud include Zookeeper, HTTP Server, and Tomcat.
