Splunk DB Connect Troubleshooting

When attempting to use Splunk DB connect, please note that the Splunk documentation was out of date at the time of this writing.

The only two things you need for the Splunk DB connect to work is ojdbc6.jar copied into $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/dbx/bin/lib and the latest JRE downloaded to a directory and the path set for the application.

The error messages that the Splunk Application provided were cryptic and either verifying/testing the connection when adding a new DB connection or when trying to pull data from the Application after setting up the DB Connect profile.

Agile Application

An Agile Application is the result of Service Oriented Architecture and Agile Development paradigms. An Agile Application is distinguished from average applications in that it is a loosely coupled set of services with a decoupled orchestration layer and it is easily modified to address changing business needs and it is scalable by design.

• What is Orchestration? It describes the automated arrangement, coordination, and management of complex computer systems, middleware, and services.

What is NIC Teaming?

NIC Teaming, also known as load balancing and failover (LBFO), allows multiple network adapters on a computer to be placed into a Team.

NIC teaming allows users to group two or more physical NICs into a single logical network device called a bond. Once a logical NIC is configured, the virtual machine is not aware of the underlying physical NICs. Packets sent to the logical NIC are dispatched to one of the physical NICs in the bond and packets arriving at any of the physical NICs are automatically directed to the appropriate logical NIC.
