The Splunk Firehose Nozzle for Tanzu Application Service (TAS) subscribes to the Loggregator endpoint and writes events to an external Splunk environment.
- The Splunk Firehose Nozzle for VMware Tanzu collects events from the Tanzu Loggregator endpoint and streams them to Splunk via HTTP event collector (HEC). Nozzle has in-memory queue buffers to increase reliability, and has parallel client to scale out multiple ingestion channels to HEC.
- The Splunk Firehose Nozzle for Tanzu can be deployed natively within a TAS environment and is available as a free tile from Tanzu Network.
- The Splunk HTTP Event Collector clients run concurrently, consuming events from the queue to enrich Tanzu events by attaching metadata fields. For scaling out, add as many HECs and place a load balancer in front.
- After data has been ingested into Splunk, it can be explored using the Splunk Add-on for Cloud Foundry—an add-on to Splunk Enterprise which parses data from any Cloud Foundry distribution—which includes pre-built panels and pre-configured search parameters.
