Splunk is a cutting edge operational intelligence and data processing platform that offers a top tier log analysis. It’s a powerful engine that lets you monitor, search, investigate, visualize and report on what’s happening with your IT infrastructure in real time.
There are times where an organization might want to connect to an external database from Splunk to get data from a database or write Splunk enterprise data in to databases etc. Fortunately, Splunk has a DB Connect app that is easily installable in your Splunk Enterprise. This app uses a JDBC driver in the background to perform any operations against the database.
