Getting the Most Out of Spur Enrichment for Splunk

Before diving into the specific features of our application, let’s explore some practical ways you can leverage these tools in your Splunk environment:

  • Generating Command: Quickly create events for analysis by inputting specific IP addresses. This is especially useful for targeted investigations.
  • Streaming Command: Enhance your existing event data by enriching it with contextual information from Spur’s Context API. This can provide deeper insights and help identify threats in your data.
  • Modular Input: Keep your data streams fresh and relevant by integrating Spur feeds directly into your Splunk indexes. This ensures you’re always working with the most current data available.

These features are designed to make your data analysis both more efficient and effective so you can utilize Spur’s data to its fullest potential.

Search Commands in Action

Spur Enrichment for Splunk includes search commands that seamlessly integrate the Spur Context API with Splunk, acting like a bridge that connects Spur’s rich data insights directly into your Splunk workflows. This integration means you can enrich and analyze your Splunk data with the added depth and context of Spur’s comprehensive resources, all within the familiar Splunk interface.

Generating Command

In Splunk, a generating command is used to create new events or data points. Our generating command leverages this concept by allowing you to initiate ad-hoc analysis with specific IP addresses. It’s particularly handy when you need to quickly generate data for on-the-spot investigation or analysis. By integrating with the Spur Context API, this command fetches and incorporates relevant contextual information from Spur, enriching your Splunk data in real time.

Streaming Command

The streaming command in Splunk serves as a dynamic tool for enriching your existing data streams. It works by adding detailed context to each event as it flows through your Splunk pipeline, utilizing the Spur Context API. This command is particularly useful for real-time data enrichment, allowing you to append additional, relevant information to each IP-related event on the fly.
