Adding Cacti Logs to Splunk

This basically the same process as adding the nagios logs, but I’ll put it up anyway.

1. Click Manager in the upper right-hand corner of Splunk Web.
2. Under System configurations, click Data Inputs.
3. Click Files and directories.
4. Click New to add an input
I choose Monitor a file or directory
6. Specify the path to the file:
With my setup it is:
/Library/WebServer/Documents/cacti/log/cacti.log
7. Under Host Heading
I choose constant value
8. Under Source Type
I choose Automatic
9. Click Save

Thats it now your cacti logs show up in splunk.
