Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services (AWS)

With this release of Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services (aws) v6.0.0, we are merging all the capabilities of the Splunk Add-on for Amazon Kinesis Firehose into the Splunk Add-on for AWS. This means now with Splunk add-on for AWS v6.0.0, customers will be able to use a single Add-on across all AWS data sources for ingesting data into Splunk. If you are using the Splunk Add-on for Kinesis Firehose as well as the Add-on for AWS with your Splunk instance, then you must uninstall the Kinesis Firehose Add-on after upgrading the Add-on for AWS to version 6.0.0 to avoid any data duplicacy and discrepancy issues. If you are not using the Add-on for Kinesis Firehose but plan to use it in the future, then we encourage all customers to adopt the Splunk Add-on for AWS v 6.0.0 instead of the Add-on for Kinesis Firehose as the Add-on for Kinesis Firehose will be discontinued in the future. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ingesting data from AWS to Splunk Cloud? Have you tried the new Splunk Data Manager yet? Data Manager makes AWS data ingestion simpler, more automated and centrally managed for you, while co-existing with AWS and/or Kinesis TAs. Read our blog post to learn more about Data Manager and it’s availability on your Splunk Cloud instance: https://splk.it/3e9F863 __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ The Splunk Add-on for Amazon Web Services allows a Splunk software administrator to collect: * Configuration snapshots, configuration changes, and historical configuration data from the AWS Config service. * Metadata for your AWS EC2 instances, reserved instances, and EBS snapshots. * Compliance details, compliance summary, and evaluation status of your AWS Config Rules. * Assessment Runs and Findings data from the Amazon Inspector service. * Management and change events from the AWS CloudTrail service. * VPC flow logs and other logs from the CloudWatch Logs service. * Performance and billing metrics from the AWS CloudWatch service. * Billing reports that you have configured in AWS. * S3, CloudFront, and ELB access logs. * Generic data from your S3 buckets. * Generic data from your Kinesis streams. * Generic data from SQS. This add-on provides modular inputs and CIM-compatible knowledge to use with other apps, such as the Splunk App for AWS, Splunk Enterprise Security and Splunk IT Service Intelligence. Versions 5.0.0 and later of the Splunk Add-on for AWS is compatible only with Splunk Enterprise version 8.0.0 and above.
