Apica supports forwarding to splunk metrics indexes. Both old metrics format and new format with multiple metrics per event are supported.
Creating a splunk metrics forwarder is straight forward and uses the "_metric" type when creating the forwarder
The following formation is obtained from the Apica UF Proxy App extension for the forwarder
- 1.The "Host" key is set to the Apica UF Proxy App extension that was created and should not use the Splunk host name.
- 2.The "Password" is set to the hec_token from the Apica UF Proxy App extension
- 3.The "port" is set to 8088
- 4.The "user" is set to "admin"
The Host, Password, Port, User can also be set to use an external Splunk HEC endpoint directly
