Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose makes it easy to stream machine-generated data to Splunk for operational intelligence. Kinesis Data Firehose can stream data to your Splunk cluster in real-time at any scale. This integration supports Splunk versions with HTTP Event Collector (HEC), including Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Cloud.
To get started, simply sign into the Kinesis management console and create a Kinesis delivery stream. Then specify your Splunk cluster as a destination for the delivery stream. You can now start sending data to your delivery stream, and Kinesis Data Firehose will automatically load the data into your splunk cluster in real-time. For more information, see the Kinesis Data Firehose developer guide.
